So I found this idea on a great blog J & A and Co. but I tweaked it a little for my own use. These are fun ideas to incorporate into your summer which focus on letters of the Alphabet. I also made up writing journals for my kids so they can draw a picture and write about what we do. Hopefully this will help keep up with what they have already learned. Here are my ideas with some from J & A and Co. She had great ideas too. feel free to take them or make up some of your own. Happy ABC's and Happy Summer.
