I mean really if you stop school in June and do not pick up ANY educational items till August/September how would you EVER expect to keep your kids brain awake. In today’s world it is so easy to add simple ways to keep your kids brain awake and alert.

One last way to help your kids brain stay awake during summer is to have then journal daily. Encourage them to journal daily about what they are doing each day during the summer. Encourage them to be aware of their punctuation and spelling. You could even have them journal on the computer in a word doc. This would give them typing practice too.
