Teach Big Lessons While Having Big Fun This Summer!

Albert Einstein said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” Isn’t that a great motto to live by this summer? Whether our children are very young or hitting double digits, every kid can appreciate making learning fun, and every parent can get on board with infusing important lessons and purpose into long summer days.

Kat Kronenberg, award winning and best-selling children’s author and sought-after speaker, has both children and parents covered with her creative activity ideas to keep kids of all ages busy, learning, building confidence, helping others and having fun while on summer vacation. Many of her activities are based on the concepts found in her latest children’s book, Love Big (January 2019) and have been implemented all around the world.
Some of Kronenberg’s tried-and-true activities include:
  • The Power of a Smile: Have children draw and create their own smiles/smiling self-portraits and show them all the way those smiles can make a difference – from sending them in the mail to others, to learning to identify all of the different “types” of smiles around them
  • Building a Dream: Children of all ages can create their own dream boards using clippings from magazines and more, positioned as a treasure map to identifying their greatest hopes and aspirations.
  • Be the Hero of Your Story: Teaching kids that they already possess the superpowers necessary to change their own life and others’ begins with a fun cape-making activity.
  • Kind Is Cool: Make a point to instill kindness from a young age by helping children make and decorate their own pointed hats, and make their very own kindness pact.
  • Discover the Treasures Around You: For those more into high-tech adventures, try geo-caching! Utilizing GPS technology, geo-caching will lead the whole family on an exciting scavenger hunt, encouraging both young and old to keep an eye out for the treasures all around us.
