Yep. It’s true. School’s out.
And whether that statement makes your heart sink, stop, or soar, there’s no getting around it – summer is here!
I’m so excited to announce the Education.com 2009 Summer Activities Challenge – a free program designed to help parents keep their kids sharp during the summer break while also reminding them that learning can be really fun! Oh, and there’s also a chance for you to score some great stuff… Families who complete the Challenge by August 31st will be entered to win a Dell Latitude 2100 Netbook or one of 100 LEGO Creator Mini Sets.
As a mom staring down the barrel of eleven loooonnngggg weeks of summer break, I’m really excited to have this new way to help my kids stay busy, have fun, and avoid the summer slide this year. We’ve already got two activities under our belt! My boys were blown away when we made fireworks on our kitchen counter last night. Seriously…that’s one you should all check out. And I’m sure their dad will be thrilled to unwrap his Duct Tape Wallet on Sunday (shhhh….)
So don’t fret, participating in the Summer Activities Challenge will make the summer zoom by. And when that beautiful yellow school bus shows up next fall to take your kids off your hands again, you may be able to curl up on your quiet couch with a shiny new laptop!
