Reimagining Education

Ideas for Summer Fun and Learning

Summer is not just a time for relaxation but also an opportunity for educational exploration and growth. To help kids avoid summer learning loss, parents can plan for their summer with learning opportunities that will cultivate their knowledge and social skills.

Lisa and Samoy recently hosted our Facebook Live Parent Takeover and the dynamic duo came up with a great starter list of summer activities to keep children active during the summer break. From educational camps and adventure parks to interactive exhibits and nature adventures, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Here are some of the activities that made the list. 

St. Louis Summer Activities

Blueprint 4 Summer STL offers a free, fast, and easy way for families to find the perfect free summer programs perfectly tailored to their children’s interest. We used it to find some of the St. Louis area activities. You can search for yourself here.
