Keeping kids’ minds growing during the summer is so important. This is a huge part of our summer plans, coming up with ways for our daughters’ minds to be creative. But, what’s also at the top of this list, is having fun with them. Those are the summer moments we’ll want to remember forever.

Here are some of our favorite ways get the kids creating and make summer camp, right at home, your way.

1. Outside scavenger hunt: If you live in a rural area, or a place where going for a hike in nature is right out your door, create a scavenger hunt looking for plants, animal tracks and colors represented in nature. If you’re an urban family, scavenger hunts are a great way to incorporate your city’s history. Give clues about landmarks, etc.

2. Activity kits + art projects: What a treat it is for the kids to open their Seedling kits. They got started on them as soon as we received the box! It’s a fun and simple way to carve out time for creative play.
