About this resource:

This is an inclusive family activity suitable for children aged 3 and above. It encourages families to come together and create a list of exciting and achievable activities they want to experience during the summer months. This interactive and engaging activity promotes goal setting, positive thinking, and the joy of shared experiences.

It provides an opportunity for family members to share their ideas, preferences, and desires, promoting communication, cooperation, and shared decision-making.

Sharing their progress and ticking off activities as they go not only adds a sense of accomplishment but also creates a supportive and encouraging virtual community.
