We don’t want our kids to lose everything they learned in the school year prior, so adding in learning activities through the summer can be unbelievably helpful!
These activities don’t have to be extravagant, they can still be fun! For those that are learning basic addition skills, these summer addition puzzles are a wonderful way to practice math without it seeming like a chore. This is especially true if your children already like puzzles.
These Summer Addition Puzzles are a perfect, hands-on and engaging way to encourage your children to keep their minds sharp over the summer and prevent summer slide!

Print out these puzzles onto paper or cardstock for more durability. Cut out the puzzles and you can laminate them if you’d like them to last. My daughter hates it when her puzzles get bent and they don’t line up properly so I like to laminate them.
To extend this activity, you can add in your favorite summer books, head outdoors to play in the sand or work in the garden.
Have some fun playing outdoors on your water slide or create a summer themed sensory bin with water beads. Any kind of water play that you can do outdoors is a huge treat for the kids.
The mess is outside and involves little clean up for you. Also when it gets hot, the kids have a way to cool themselves down.
