School is almost out. What are kids to do? Thankfully, the Harris County Public Library's excellent Summer Reading Program is on the horizon. In addition, author Susan Williamson makes it easy for kids to fill their days with fun activities in her book Summer fun: 60 activities for a kid-perfect summer. There are things to do on rainy days, sunny days, and on summer nights.
One of the activities for rainy days in Williamson's book is to make a movable shadow puppet. With a pencil, some poster board, a hole punch, and other materials, kids can make a puppet and put on a fun puppet show.
Parents and kids, check out this book today and start planning fun activities. After all, as Williamson writes, "too much free time is almost as bad as no free time."
