Happy Friday! And welcome to another We Love Weekends link-up, featuring content from family-friendly bloggers around the web to inspire you and your family to love the weekend too! Be sure to check out our favorite picks from last week, a Summer School Ideas for Preschoolers round-up.
Summer kicks off the start of birthday season for our extended family. So Saturday morning, we packed up the kids and the car and headed for the Berkshires to celebrate my niece’s 10th birthday! I can’t believe she is already 10 years old. It was a beautiful family party, with awesome food, and even better dessert. Lil’ M had her eye on the prize, and grabbed herself a finger full of icing while the rest of us were all busy singing!
On Sunday, we enjoyed a day at my in-law’s lakeside home, soaking in the natural beauty of the Berkshires. Nature is truly awe inspiring up there!
Summer School Ideas for Preschoolers
With Big M officially out of preschool for the summer, we have more time than ever to fill with at-home activities! With that in mind, from all the posts last week I was drawn to these 3 great summer school ideas for preschoolers that you can share with them at home, while keeping their minds and hands busy until Fall.
My first feature is Rhythms of Play’s DIY Outdoor Chalkboard. I have serious DIY envy on this one. My list of projects for the new house is growing by the day, and this has now taken top billing. My girls love sidewalk chalk so much, and I know they would be beyond ecstatic to have their very own chalkboard. Check out Nell’s post for the full how-to!
Next up is a post from P is for Preschooler, who shared an awesome round-up of 10 Summer Science Activities. From DIY Giant Bubbles to Solar Ovens to make your own s’mores to Pendulum Painting and more, there are weeks worth of great, science-inspired play activities for you and your preschooler to enjoy.
And last, but not least, you may have caught our post earlier this week on the Importance of Play for Early Childhood Development. Jamie, at Hands On As We Grow is a kindred spirit, and always has great ideas for early childhood-appropriate play. She shared 8 Messy Play Ideas and why it is so important to let your kids be little, make messes and great memories!
