Printable Boredom Busting Summer Activities For Kids

These boredom busting Summer activities are the result of me attempting to home school my preschooler when our school district cancelled the school year in March 2020.

My 4.5 year old isn’t super interested in any type of traditional learning activities. As a result, traditional counting and number practice will not work in our house. So, I created my own thematic Count & Color activities to sneak in some number, sorting and coloring practice.

She has a very short attention span and I’m glad to report that these free printable Count & Color activities are a huge hit in our home.
