Summer and Kids

Summer break is almost here…or maybe it is already here for some kids. There are lots of ways to have fun during the summer. But summer can be a great time to do something new or impact the lives of others. Here are 10 ideas of things a kid can do during the summer that will make a difference in their own life or the lives of others.

  1. Memorize a Bible verse a week…or maybe a chapter. If you are looking for a really BIG challenge, memorize Proverbs 3:1-15.
  2. Do something kind for someone every day. (Don’t forget that your brothers and sisters need kindness too)
  3. Learn a new skill. Maybe you would like to learn to draw or juggle or do magic tricks.
  4. Read a book a week.
  5. Ask your parents for a special new assignment each week, such as a new chore you could master.
  6. Learn to cook (with some help from an adult).
  7. Play a game that your younger brother or sister likes each week.
  8. Write a letter to a different school friend each week to ask how their summer is going.
  9. Learn about the lives of kids in a different country.
  10. Start a journal. Write a few sentences about what you did or how you felt each day.

Whatever you decide to do this summer, make sure that you always remember:

I need to make the wise choice.

I can trust God no matter what.

I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Have a great summer!
