Take the time to do good for a friend, family member, or your community over the summer. Using T. A. Barron’s Summer Sparks idea guide, try these 50 great ideas to help keep your kids active and engaged throughout their school break.
Keeping kids occupied during school holidays can be pretty challenging. That’s why I created my Summer Sparks activity sheet filled with inspiring ideas for kids of all levels! Together with the help of some terrific and dedicated Parenting bloggers, I am challenging parents and kids this summer to perform at least one “spark of goodness” each week — large or small — in order to help make the world around you a better place.
Want to be a Summer Spark? It’s easy! Simply download the free “50 Ways to Create Summer Sparks” suggestion sheet filled with ideas for your family, as well as my “Summer Sparks Tracker” sheet to keep track of all the things you’re doing to make your kindness count and post both sheets somewhere visible — in my house, it’s usually the refrigerator! Next, every time you select and complete a Summer Spark, mark it down on the tracker to keep parents and kids (and even babysitters!) inspired to make a difference all summer long.
Once you’ve performed one or more acts of kindness, head over to SparkGoodness.com and let me know all the great things you’ve done — every entry makes you eligible for the month’s #SparkGoodness prize!
