As a teacher, I cannot fully describe the feeling of summer break. It is not that I do not adore my students or miss them during my weeks off. Of course, I do. However, I put my heart and soul into my students and my lessons during the school year. When summer hits, I need the break as much as they do!
As a mom of a toddler, my daughter has not yet experienced her first summer break. I do “preschool” at home with my little one. Since she does not understand the difference between summer break and the school year, we are continuing on our same schedule. Actually, it is better because I have more time to plan!
Yes, I am a teacher mom, but I think all moms want to ensure that their kids continue to learn throughout the summer. Believe me, we teachers appreciate when the kids return in the fall without their brains full of mush! So, what can you do? Natalie is here today to share some things moms can do this summer that will keep those brains and bodies active!

Moms are always looking for activities to do with their kids that are fun and educational-two birds, one stone right? Summer gives you an opportunity to be outside in the fresh air and for older children gives them a break from sitting in a classroom all day.

Moms will love that they’re developing skills, and kids will love having fun-win win! Check out the infographic from TakeLessons.com below for some more ideas.
