As a LeapFrog Ambassador, I get to hear some of their new and exciting news a little sooner than most. When I heard about their ‘Discover Summer Club’, I was keen to share the details with my readers…
LeapFrog tell me that children can lose up to 3 MONTHS of learning during the summer months. To help, LeapFrog’s Discover Summer Club offers parents fun printables, activities and tips to keep your kids active and engaged all summer long!
It offers creative inspiration, life skills lessons, nature by numbers, day trip suggestions, and advice on encouraging your child to read, so parents will get plenty of educational ideas to keep their little ones brain ticking.
This video from Dr Jody also has some helpful tips for keeping kids active and learning throughout Summer…
For those who sign up to the Leapfrog Discover Summer Club, there is a chance to win prizes every week. Each Friday, one weekly prize winner will be chosen. They will receive a ‘Discover Summer Travel Bundle’ which includes a Britax KIDFIX car seat, plus LeapFrog goodies worth £100. In September, one Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random, and they win a Center Parcs break worth up to £750! Find full T&Cs here.
I’ve had a look at some of the activities included in the Discover Summer Club, and I will definitely be trying some with Sam and Syd. One in particular stuck out to me – Natural Numbers. We do this activity all the time already… It involves counting things your child collects while out and about. Syd is forever picking and counting flowers, lining up stones etc. Who knew I was already teaching the kids so much.
It mentions some LeapFrog items for school age children, but there are some new products which are perfect for children (like mine) who are about to start school and nursery for the first time.
Scout’s Build & Discover Tool Box is suitable for children age 2+ and it introduces toddlers to their first step-by-step building project, using counting, measuring, and colour matching. It comes with 5 tools and each works with an area of the tool box.
The Number Loving Oven is aimed at children aged 2 and over. It brings baking and maths together, and gives toddlers a first glimpse into how numbers are a part of everyday life.
We have been sent both of these items to review, so look out for those coming soon!
There is also another new product out, which is aimed at children aged 4 and over. Word Whammer teaches children phonics skills as they spin, push and twist the handles to identify letters and build words. It features three funfair themed games and five learning levels, which adapt as they play.
Have you got any other tips for free and educational activities to keep the kids entertained during the Summer? I’d love to hear them!
