Summer vacation is here, and while the kids are out of school it’s important for parents to make sure the kids don’t shut off their brains completely.  Chloe is here to help, with four ways to keep kids’ brains from rotting over the Summer.

1. e-Books

There’s a few things about e-books that you may not know.  First, if you have a library card, you can borrow an e-book from any library in the state– they can be downloaded temporarily onto a tablet or a computer.  Some local libraries will even loan out tablets or e-readers for those who don’t own one.  And e-books are not exclusive to novels– there’s lots of cool workbooks and activity books that will keep your kids engaged all summer.  If you own e-books, you can even rent or borrow them to others as well, so start your own virtual book club!

2. Pinterest

Pinterest has a lot of really good things put up by teachers, such as writing prompts and activities.  Set up a Pinterest account for your kid and they’ll find engaging activities suited to their interests.  If kids want ideas on things to write about, they can find that inspiration on Pinterest, under writing prompts.

3. Blogging

Planning a family vacation this summer?  Have your kids take photos and write about their experiences in a blog.  They can put their pictures together, to make a great show and tell for how they spent their summer, when they head back to school in the Fall.

4. Cooking

There’s a few cloud services, such as Evernote Cook, which allow you to save recipes.  Kids love to help out with cooking, and using this service, they can read recipes, store their favorites and keep them all on one website.  You can also include your kids by having them help make a grocery list using Grocery IQ (another cool app that lets you scan items around the house to build a shopping list)
