On the street hot summer. The kids are resting from school, they spend all their days on the street. Of course, they need summer vacation.
In addition to walks in the yard, I try to engage my children with something useful and developing. I do not allow them to walk in the sun. Of course, in our private courtyard there is a place under the trees, where you can hide from the sun, but I still try to take walks to the morning and evening hours.
To be honest, I naively hoped that my children would sleep at least an hour during the day. For some reason it seemed to me that they are very tired, driving with the ball on the street. But it was not there! Instead of taking a nap, the daughters arrange pillow fights and make plans for the next evening. The idea of daytime sleep is clearly not for us.
Then I decided to involve children in creativity. Why? Let them sculpt, paint, paint. And rest a little, and spend time with good.
I had the idea to write dictation texts with them every day, but I presented their resistance, and decided to take pity 🙂
I printed the girls coloring, write, logical tasks. That’s what they do with pleasure! What do your kids do in the summer? Are you able to sit behind the recipe and other developmental tasks?
