7 Great Places to Squeeze in Summer Learning

Farmer's Market


With all the different fruits and vegetables at the farmer's market, your child will always find something new to learn about. Younger children can work on counting and learning their colors by identifying the rainbow of fruits and vegetables available and counting pieces of fruit to put in your shopping cart.

Older children can get a quick math lesson by helping you to weigh your produce. If you are getting different varieties, ask your child how much he thinks your total will be by adding the different prices. If you have more than one child with you, turn it into a game — whoever is closest to the right amount wins!
