Educational Activities for Kids at Home

It’s a question we receive a lot at The Vanguard School – how can I keep my child academically engaged all summer? It is true, children need and crave stimulation, whether they are in school or not. Summer educational activities can be vital extensions of what the student is already working on in school. We also don’t want idle minds! Students who are active during the summer are more likely to succeed overall.

Educational Outdoor Activities for Students

Summer is a great time to get out and explore the beauty of Colorado. There are many educational outdoor activities for students that can be done right from home: playing with chalk, growing some fruits and vegetables, and reading outside.

Sports are some of the best ways to help children. Regular exercise not only helps them in their studies, but it helps kids build and maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
