I want to feel the sand in my toes. I want to hear the waves crashing on the shore. I want to smell the salty ocean air. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little summer-themed learning fun this summer!
So, we will have to settle for watching summer-themed movies like Teen Beach Movie and Judy Moody and the Not So Bummer Summer, and decorating our house with seashells and starfish that we’ve collected or purchased on past trips to the beach. We’ll fill our book basket with ocean-themed books, and pretend we’re relaxing on the beach.

If your kids are bored this summer and looking for something to do, why not print out some fun summer-themed activity pages for them to work on? I’ve created a new summer freebie just for them! Some of the pages are just plain fun. Some sneak in a little learning, too.
