We barely took a breath in June. I had no worries about screen time or rotting brains because there was just.no.time. for laziness.
That schedule continued into the first week of July, but it’s funny how things can take a 180° turn. “Go outside! Just play! Read a book!” Our kids went from overdrive to no drive, and for a few days, we let them!
Now that our summer activity schedule has (finally) slowed and school looms just a month in the distance, it’s time to revive the synapses.
Before the summer craze set in, I was introduced to Zoobean, a service that curates apps, books, and education resources for children. (Amy translates: a service that keeps my kids busy and learning with materials that meet their needs and that they are interested in, without me having to research and find all of those materials! Win!)
With my Expert membership I received my very own curator who has been gathering books, kits, and app suggestions to meet the profile I set up for my 7 year old. She thinks she’s something special to browse through books selected just for her!
I personally appreciate the app suggestions, because my kids are always wanting to play on devices, but I don’t want to scour through to see which ones are appropriate and relevant. (And let’s be real here. I really don’t know what I’m doing with apps in the first place. It’s good to have someone hold my hand.)
As a former teacher I look at the kits like I did themed units in the classroom. One topic with a host of books and activities centered on that topic. Fun stuff!
