Start a Collection
Give the children an activity that can last the entire summer and maybe beyond. Starting
a collection is a good way to learn more about a topic and can be the start of a new
hobby. A good summertime activity is to begin a nature collection or book.

them to the world of collecting here are some easy suggestions. Start a Collection
