3 tips to organize a summer schedule for kids.

If you have great memories of your childhood summers, you probably know now that lots of planning went on behind the scenes. Learn to create a summer schedule for kids.

For many children, summer is a special time of year. Dreaming of the fun and adventure that summer will bring keeps them motivated to focus on their lessons throughout the colder months of the year. With a bit of planning, you can help them have a memorable summer while they continue to learn and grow.

How to create a summer schedule for kids.

Keeping kids occupied during the summer months can be a challenge. They may have dreams of goofing off all summer long, while you know they need to continue learning. Letting kids be a part of summer planning can help them learn how to find a good balance between fun and studies.

Here are three great tips to help you build a balanced summer schedule for kids:

  1. Don't pack too much into each day. Many kids need some structure to help them feel safe and in control. Try creating a routine that includes a mix of chores and learning with fun and relaxation.
  2. Kids like to know what to expect. Create a schedule and post it where everyone can see it. Conflict can arise when your plan for the day is different from what your child expects. Help set those expectations beforehand by posting a schedule.
  3. You want your children to have great memories of their childhood summers — so be ready to throw that schedule out the window sometimes. An unexpected adventure from time to time will help your kids create fond memories.
