First Day of Summer

It has been SO HOT here that it’s hard to believe it’s  still spring!  Summer officially starts tomorrow, Wednesday, June 20th!  I am planning a day of fun and learning for the kiddos!  (I am including links for my mommy friends.)

The big kids are going to find clues all over the house and yard for a treasure hunt!  The final clue will lead them to a Jelly Belly snow cone machine!  I found it on sale at Target last week, and I’ve been hiding it!  What could be better than snow cones to celebrate the first day of summer?

The twins are going to do a coloring matching nature hunt.

We are going to make BIG bubbles (or at least try!).    Here and here are some recipes and ideas for bubble wands.

We are going to take a little time to learn about something we have a lot of around here: mosquitos! 🙂  We may read Why Mosquitos Buzz in People’s Ears.

Here are a few mosquito ideas:

fun facts about mosquitos

mosquito life cycle

educational materials  like matching pages and mazes

The twins are learning about the letter Aa this week!  One of their Language Development posters is all about ants!  We are going to do a little study on ants  from Proverbs, too!

Changing seasons is a wonderful opportunity to get outside, spend time together, and marvel at God’s handiwork!  I can’t wait!

“The heavens declare the glory of God,

and the sky above proclaims his handiwork!” Ps 19:1
