You can turn your child's summer vacation into learning adventures with a few new ideas.  Begin by transforming something. 

For instance, give the family a week to turn the backyard into an ocean floor. Tape the strings on helium balloons sideways and pain them to look like floating fish.  Branches stuck into the soil become red coral, and an empty refrigerator box with a hatch and portholes becomes a sunken pirate ship.  Send everyone on a hunt for private treasure, using clues calling for the knowledge of the flora and fauna they've duplicated.

Let the kids study their region's Native Americans.  Indians and settlers can race to find the state flag and reconcile over bubble pipes, hot dogs, and a good Indian story.  Here, a refrigerator box serves as a pueblo, teepee, or fort that youngsters decorate.

Stimulate your children to read during the long hot summer months.  Read aloud a mystery or thriller, handing the book to your child to finish at the climax.  Preschoolers master four or five words quickly when they pull secret commands from a hat, such as "Kiss Dad" or "Tickle me."  Ask their help in labeling something like frozen food portions.  Let them type a message to a friend, or search for their last name in the phone book.  

These are just a few suggestions for hot fun in the summertime.  Next week I'll share a few more ideas to consider.
