This Summer Activities resource is great for young students to have fun with over the holiday periods and summer vacation.
When travelling or over a vacation period, young people will undoubtedly be glued to technology. That’s fine for a while, but it is healthy to give them a variety of activities to be doing whilst reflecting on their experiences, hence the reason I created this resource.
The activities in this pack are simple and fun to work through, require no preparation from you and will entertain them when travelling and over the holiday period (be that a vacation or even a stay-cation!) They’re versatile enough for any experiences!.

You can print these off and put them in a special binder so your young ones can complete them when they like. There are plenty to choose from and I think the option of choice is important in making sure they enjoy doing these.
As a teacher you can give this pack to your students at end of the year for them to complete over summer and bring back next school year. This makes a good starting point for back to school discussions.
This is also great if you are a parent /carer who is looking to keep your own children entertained with fun and educational activities while at home.
The pages have been designed to be all black and white so they can be coloured in – an extra fun and relaxing element, plus it allows them to personalize their booklet.
Finally, this makes a great keepsake for the future to remind your young ones of their vacation! So get them off their technology for a while and encourage them to really observe and reflect on their experiences with this quality resource.
