Check out these summer activities for preschoolers to try even when school’s out. Perfect for summer camps, or hot days hanging out at home.
The school year is over, which means it’s time to bring on summer. I adore teaching, but I also love the extra time I get with my kiddo when school is out.
Plus, there are preschool summer camps and time with friends and family during the summer months. So it’s not like the fun early learning has to stop just because school’s out, right?
If you need some more ideas, here’s a collection of engaging summer activities for preschoolers. I have it on good authority that older kids get a kick out of these activities, too!
