I figured out the trick to bridging the summer learning gap! Don't let the kiddos know they are learning. So, I try to find games that help me out with that. Educational Insights has made an awesome game called Surfside Scramble that is a ton of fun, but the kids are learning and don't even know it! 
     The point of the game is to race and swap your flip-flops, which have letters on them. Then, make as many words as you can. Surfside Scramble is for 2-4 players and is great for ages nine and up.

     I loved that it was a timed game that made the kiddos spell. This is awesome for summer learning. We are having fun playing a game, but at the same time it is enforcing spelling and social skills. We used this during a family picnic and it was so much fun! It kept a group of kids entertained for a good while, which is always appreciated!
