Kids Summer Reading 2020 Activity Kits

Dear kids and families,

Everything sure is different this year! Many challenges have come our way and perhaps more are yet to come. But there is an unexpected gift to difficulties: they make us stronger, wiser, and better able to understand each other. In fact, they help us grow up 🙂

With that in mind, let us introduce the FAMILY FUN ACTIVITY KITS! For Summer Reading 2020, we’ve created 3 activity kits that are not only inspired by arts and science, but also the concept of SERVICE. In other words, how can we use what’s in this kit to help someone else, make them happy, teach them something, or get to know someone new?

Maybe you can share something with a neighbor. There’s a game you could play with your parents. You could read the directions to your little sister. Or send something in the mail to someone who’s lonely. All of those things are very important acts of SERVICE, which not only makes others happy, it makes us happy too!

FAMILY FUN ACTIVITY KITS will be given away during the first 3 weeks of July. Each week is a different kit with new activities!

*Each child gets one kit each week.
