Summer is well under way and I plan on making the most of each day!  To the kids, making the most of each day is playing, swimming, hanging out with friends, making big messes, tormenting your siblings etc!  I like that too (except the last two items:), but I have a bit of a brainy plan for the kids…and they will never even know they are learning.

With the girls, they always loved playing school in the summer, so learning a little extra math or spelling was not a problem, but now with the boys, we have to sneak up on learning and make it more fun (and not anything like school!)

I found some great websites that have simple science experiments for the kids.  They look like so much fun and, well, if they learn something along the way, great!

Here is one that we have had to make twice because the kids love it so much.  We have decided to change the ratios each time to observe the different reactions.   I tried to introduce booklets to jot down our observations, but that was a bit too much like homework and they didn’t like the sound of that!  Baby steps!

Let me know if you come across any great sites with ways to get your kids to learn their times tables!!!

Until next time!

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
