The thing I love most about summer is that my kids get to have those long unstructured blocks of playtime that they need and crave. However, I know I will hear, “There’s nothing to do…” more than once! In the interest of being proactive, I’m putting together some summer fun bags – ziploc bags filled with simple, open-ended projects and ideas that will hopefully spark the girls’ interest and get them busy doing something.
Summer Fun Bag #1: Tangrams
My girls love puzzles, so I think they will enjoy playing with tangrams. I printed the tangram template here on colored cardstock. I used the large template, which still fits on a regular size sheet of paper. I cut out two sets of tangrams, and printed the animal tangram puzzles from abcteach. I’m sure the girls will also enjoy coming up with their own designs!
More Summer Fun Bags to come! Happy playing!
