Christian Counseling - Summer Structure Part II

Sorry for the delay in this post. I have been compiling some ideas for summer structure for children, Please feel free to email me with your ideas. Some initial comments... First, structure for the sake of structure is not the idea. Having them move a mound of dirt from the back of the house to the front of the house and back again on a timed schedule provides some structure. What is the point of the task? Try to think about what you want them to learn while you have them for the summer. Instead of simply surviving the summer, you can take the time to teach them. Second, try to think about what you would like to learn about them. They are constantly changing. If we don't keep up, we might get lost. Anyway, here are some ideas (in no particular order)

1. Vacation Bible School

2. Summer Acting and Music Camps

3. Neighborhood Co-op - Divide time with several parents to take days to come up with fun or learning based activities.

4. Summer Reading Club - You can do this with only your child or several children and their parents. You can use a book of your choice or a book that your child needs to read for school.

5. Make meals together to teach your children how to cook.

6. Volunteer at a Shelter.

7. Learn a foreign language together.

8. Make a chore/behavior chart for them to earn points for special outings.

9. Make/edit a movie of your summer together.

10. Plant and maintain a garden.

Well, that is 10 ideas. Not a complete list by any means, but a start. If you have other ideas, I would love to hear them. If you need any help with the one's listed here, please feel free to contact me. Have a meaningful and fun summer!
