Have you been enjoying summer? We have! But every once in a while, there's some down time to fill. Recently, I discovered the video section of the Odyssey Adventure Club, and let Jack do some watching on my iPad. We'll be listening to some of the stories in the van soon, as we're going to go visit out of town relatives.
Adventures in Odyssey is here to save the day. Below are some must-try ideas for summer fun! Want even more summer fun? For the month of June, you can join the Odyssey Adventure Club for only $5! More details can be found here.
Summer ActivitiesAs a parent you are probably a big proponent of reading. Encourage your kids to dig into a book or two this summer with Adventures in Odyssey's On Your Marks Summer Reading Challenge. Bonus points if YOU create a reading challenge for yourself as you read along with your kids!
Looking for something hands-on? Create Matthew in 3-D! Invite a few of your kids' friends over for a play date, print off the activity sheet, and let them have at it for the afternoon (with the promise of cookies and lemonade once they've finished constructing Matthew).
Maybe your kids aren't into reading, but they love math. If that's the case, have them solve Eugene's Sudoku!
The laundry needs to be done; the dishes need to be put away. But your kids are begging you to take them out to the zoo. Let them take a whack at Matthew's Decoder in the morning, then make an agreement that if they figure out how to use the decoder, you'll take them on an afternoon adventure. That'll give you the morning to finish up your to-do list!
