Combating the Summer Slide: KC Live Segment

I had so much fun on KC Live this morning sharing tips for keeping kids having fun through education all summer long! Here are 3 ways to keep them entertained and educated. 🙂


1. A spinner on a white board with EXPO Dry Erase Markers.  

This is a great way to reward children or

 make selecting an activity a game. I like using Ink Indicator markers because you always know how much ink is remaining in the markers and they’re available in 6 colors so you can keep your board organized how you choose.


2. Summer Reading Bingo. This s super easy to create and keeps kids motivated and interested in reading if they get to check off milestones. For a fun and colorful Bingo board, decorate the board using Sharpie Art Pens because they are quick-drying and smear resistant.


3. Scrapbooking is something the whole family can enjoy and it keeps kids occupied for hours. You can find kits at your local craft store and for this I really like using Elmer’s Re-Stick Glue Stick because it allows you to adjust your creations for up to five minutes so you have time to play around with your scrapbook.  I also like having fun decorating it with Elmer’s classic glitter glue.
