The Best End-of-Summer Activity Ideas on Pinterest

As summer comes to a close, many of us scramble to check things off our to-do list. For a lot of us, this list includes getting ready for back to school: buying new supplies, meeting the teacher, finishing up last minute summer school items — the list goes on and on. Although it can get stressful checking these items off the to-do list, it’s important to remember to squeeze in some end of summer activities with your young learner. They want to end the summer on the right note, and so do you!ID-100154175

Here are some end of summer activity ideas that we rounded up on Pinterest:

  • Before the weather cools down, take the opportunity to use the hot outdoors for a fun project. For instance, you can make ice chalk with your little ones and watch it melt beautiful colors onto the sidewalk.
  • Celebrate the last few nights sans homework with a homemade, outdoor movie theatre. You can even have your little ones help design the look!
  • Nothing says summer like water activities, which makes these sponge water bombs a perfect craft for the end of summer.
  • The end of summer is also a wonderful time to begin preparing for back to school. Here are some back to school traditions and ideas.
  • Reflect on the summer with your child by journaling. Here’s a great prompt to inspire some writing topic ideas.
