Homeschool.com’s 101 Things To Do This Summer list is chocked-full of educational and fun things to do.  Maybe your kids will be interested in some of the following–

  7. Lie outside at night and watch the sky for shooting stars. Find out why shooting stars aren’t really stars at all. http://starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/StarChild/questions/question12.html

30. Make S’mores. If you can’t roast the marshmallows over a fire, make BroilerS’Mores. OR, better yet, make Solar S’Mores! Be sure to get parental permission.

 41. Learn to skip stones. There’s a science behind it.
