Summer Activity Schedule ideas for 5 to 7-year-olds.
School has been out for 2 weeks already, and we have been so busy!
I’ve been trying to get this post up, but keep getting distracted by other stuff!
Monday: will be for our craft projects.
Tuesday: a trip to the library.
Wednesday: baking something child-appropriate like cookies, pizzas, ice cream…
Thursday: math and handwriting lessons, special outings.
Friday: playdate and pool day.
The school introduced my son to computer games this year (1st grade). I didn’t really appreciate that, because now all he wants to do is play on the computer. (of course)
I’ve been making him “earn” his computer time with chores, outside time, and reading/worksheets.
Yesterday, I found this cute punch card on Making the World Cuter. She even included the blank version, so I can edit it to my needs. It will make it so much easier to track his computer time. I think I will reward each punch with 10 minutes of computer time.
We have been doing worksheets after breakfast and chores around 3pm. I am going to add reading and writing worksheets/projects after lunch. It seems easier to get them to do schoolwork when they are already sitting at the table.
We have already done some cute projects that I will be posting about so stay tuned!
