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. (It’s important when using scissors to ask Mom or Dad to help you.)
