Ending Summer on a High Note with Your Preschooler

Ending Summer on a High Note with Your Preschooler at Kids 'R' Kids Northern Greensboro, preschool, daycare, childcare

As summer winds down and the school year approaches, why not begin a new family tradition to say farewell to summer?  Here are a few fun ideas for your family:


Take your preschooler shopping to pick out some new school clothes and supplies. It might not be fun for you, but most toddlers enjoy getting new things and picking them out all by themselves. It will also get them excited about starting school and using those things!

Have a special movie night at home or take your preschooler out for a special dinner and a movie. You can surprise them with their favorite restaurant and a movie they have been wanting to see. Or you can make their favorite meal and rent a movie to watch at home.

Water Day

Plan your own water day at home. Break out the water slides, kiddie pools, water tables and pool noodles one last time! Maybe make an obstacle course and enjoy a picnic and popsicles when you need to rest and cool off.

Stock Up

Check out the clearance section at your local stores and grab some good end of summer deals.  Most stores are trying to get rid of summer inventory right now. You can come up with a fun activity by using things you find on clearance. You could even incorporate it into a water day!

Memory Books

Make a photo book or scrapbook of the summer. Let your preschooler help choose some photos of their favorite summer memories. Print them out and make a book or create a digital book to be printed and saved forever!

Day Trip

If you are up for it, take an end-of-summer day trip somewhere new, or enjoy one last weekend away as a family. No matter what you choose to do, having fun together is the most important thing. Here’s to an amazing end of summer!
