Back to School Already?

It seems like school is just around the corner!  Ease the transition for your kids with these fun ideas.

Playing games can be fun and educating:

Practice your math with a beach ball, play air golf, captain’s calling, sidewalk skellzies, 15 seconds of fame, go on a treasure hunt or open your own diner.

Making food is another great way to teach your kids different kinds of math:

Try these ideas: pencil cake, sandwich on a stick, date nut bars, curried chicken salad, banana chocolate chip muffins, and taco roll-ups.

Do some crafts to help your kids get ready for school:

Tote-ally cool, homemade school carryall tins, velvet journal, pencil buddies, magazine bead bracelet, cereal box tote bag, easy weave newsprint basket, matchbox locket.

If you’re in a really homework mood, you can do some of these more school related activities.
