June 2022 Products

June marks the beginning of summer. Kids are getting ready for outside activities, swimming and traveling. But, there are also special days to celebrate. 

 Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th, and it is part of the National Flag Week which begins on June 10. Our flag is a symbol of freedom and liberty so this day offers the perfect opportunity to help kids gain a deeper understanding of what patriotism is.  Flag Day is a holiday that often gets overlooked since it is just a few weeks after Memorial Day, yet, this holiday is a chance to help kids explore the design and grasp the significance of the American flag. The design dates back to 1777 and Betty Ross is believed to have created the flag. Kids love drawing the flag with the stars and stripes. 

Juneteenth is short for June nineteenth and this day marks when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865. The troops took control of the state and ensured that enslaved people were freed. This official holiday honors the end of slavery in the United States. 
 Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June. This is a chance to celebrate male figures that play an important role in your kids' lives. It could be the child's father, uncle, grandfather, brother, or coach. Making a handmade card or even a paper mug is a lovely way to celebrate important male figures. 

As June winds to a close, you can focus on Summer activities. Summer is a wonderful season but keeping kids engaged during the summer months can be a challenge. Purchasing a bundle of resources is a great way to ensure that you have a selection of activities to choose from. Summer writing activities are a great way to develop writing skills. Drawing activities are engaging and it is a way to decorate the writing with ice cream cones, palm trees and beautiful sandcastles. Building sandcastles from paper is a fun craft activity that kids love. A great way to learn facts about summer is to use a fact booklet, filled with facts about this loved season. There is after all no better way to grab their attention than exploring what they are thinking about - summer, sun and beach!

 Finish the year of learning strong by going on a Safari Hunt. Kids are given clues about animals then they go hunting for the animals. The description and clues help the kids to identify the animals. Learning at its best is always fun and engaging. 

Happy Summer Learning!
