My girls have been enjoying their first three weeks of LeapFrog Summer Camp. This week, the theme is Puzzle Time!

There is a featured puzzle for every day of the week.

LeapFrog Summer Camp Weekly Theme

This week, the girls started with Monday’s puzzle, Secret Message, a printable that helps with letter sound recognition, spelling, and writing practice.

“Pig starts with a P!”

We also looked at some of the “extra credit” printables which were listed below the daily ones. Stalking the printer as the mazes flew out onto the floor:

Cutting out a puzzle and putting it together…

I notice that one of them cuts out all of the pieces first (with borders) and places them in a pile to put together later, while the other cuts the pieces out one by one (without borders) and puts the pieces together as she goes.

They could NOT get enough of the printables! I suggest printing on two sides of the paper when you can!

But LeapFrog Summer Camp isn’t just printables to do at home. There are activities to encourage going out and about and developing observational skills. We had fun with an activity for Week 1 (Out and About), using a passport to explore our neighborhood to talk about it, then they drew what they saw. There are also instructions to make your own crafts (like make a model of your room with a cardboard box). Can’t wait to try this one!

In addition, each week there is a 15% off discount on selected LeapFrog games, if your kiddo has a LeapFrog console such as the LeapFrog Tag, Leapster Explorer or LeapPad. My girls each have a Leapster Explorer so it’s been great to take advantage of the savings on new games. Plus, you can submit photos of your kiddos enjoying their LeapFrog Summer Camp activities to LeapFrog’s Facebook page for a chance to win a $50 prize pack!

I love that these LeapFrog activities encourage them to think, and to learn to follow directions. It really is keeping them learning, as well as prepping them for Kindergarten, during these summer months! I really encourage you to try these activities with your kiddos. It’s not too late to join in on LeapFrog Summer Camp! Have a great summer full of learning and fun!
