When those Summer blahs come along...
Here are some fun activities that you can create yourself with a little help from Mom & Dad
Plant a Garden
Ask mom and dad to help you get started - maybe a small corner of the big garden. Sunflowers are
great to grow because you can give the seeds to the birds or harvest them to eat yourself!
Build a House from Cardboard
Be creative with a large appliance box (available from appliance stores). Cut out doors, windows,
make curtains from old strips of material, add pillows, dolls and snacks. Or make a puppet theatre
by standing the box upended and cutting a large opening for an entrance on one of its sides. Paint it
or add curtains. You can make puppets from brown bags, scraps of material, socks or other
household materials. Hold a puppet show for your friends. (Its important when using scissors to
ask Mom or Dad to help you.)
