8 FREE summer activities for kids and teens


Keep your students learning once school is out with these summer activities for kids or teens with this free 8-week challenge. There is one for younger students and one for middle and high school kids.

This certainly has been another very interesting and unique school year. That is why it is more important than ever to keep our kiddos engaged and still learning over the next couple of summer months. So, if you are a parent or teacher, check out this free 8-week summer challenge I am putting together for our students with moderate to severe needs.

I know how busy everyone is. Our intentions are always so good. We have plans to put together task boxes and file folders for our kids to do in between trips to the pool and Grandma’s house. We don’t want our kids to fall behind. We will make it fun, creative, and designed to review those precious new skills learned in the last few weeks of school.

But then things get so busy, and you don’t have any energy to put towards implementing all those great ideas you had on June 1. So, let me help you. I have put together a FREE challenge that will help keep you and your kids or students on track and ready for the next school year.

How will it work?

After you sign up, you will get your first activity. There will be things that may need to be printed out, but it will be worth it, trust me!! My feeling is that many kids (my own included) spend more than enough time on their devices in front of a screen. My goal is to get kids moving and utilize those fine and gross motor skills.

You will then get a new activity once or twice a week emailed to you. You will find everything you need in that email.

What will these summer activities for kids focus on?

I have plans for math activities, life skills activities, reading, writing, art, and more. That way, if your kiddo has a favorite area, I will likely hit it in those 4 weeks.

What grade level will these summer activities for kids cover?

As many of you know, my passion is for those older kiddos, but I didn’t want to leave anyone out. So, I am creating 2 separate challenges. One has summer activities for kids in elementary school, and one has summer activities for kids in middle/high school. You should base your decision on your child’s/student’s age or grade he/she is in. For example, if you have a high school student who reads at a first-grade level, you should still sign up for the older challenge. The activities will be designed for students who have significant challenges. So, if that does not describe your kiddo, this may not be for you. Finally, a few of the activities may be the same for both age groups (in case you sign up for both).

When can I sign up?

The challenge will stay open indefinitely. Regardless of when you are reading this, go ahead and sign up!!

Who can sign up?

Really, this challenge is open to anyone: teachers, parents, grandparents, hab-tech workers, counselors, and therapists…. The key is to remember that the activities will be created for students with moderate to severe challenges. The activities will assume the individual has no or very little reading ability. Pictures are used heavily, and there will be differentiation provided.

How do I join?

This is the easy part!! Click the button below depending on which challenge you want to be a part of. You will have to enter your email and confirm your request. That’s it!!

I can’t wait to get started. You will gain access to some amazing resources that are in my store and personal collection. My intention is to make it fun and independent for your kiddos while keeping it easy for YOU.
