The school year is winding down.  My kids have just a little over a month to go before they’re off for the summer.  The summer is a time for playing outside, swimming, sleeping in, all the things kids can’t do during school.  But I worry about “brain drain” the term used for loss of knowledge or skills that kids might now use as often during summer breaks.

Educents has some deals on FUN and EDUCATIONAL products to keep kids learning over the summer.

I’m ordering the Budgeting 101: Teaching Kids to Manage a Budget for my two older boys. It’s geared for 6th grade level up to high school. A skill they may not learn in school but we know is so important. It’s only $4 so you can stay within your own budget!

I think this is $4 well spent. With this age group maybe starting their first job or getting ready to head off to college this would be a great start to learning how to manage money.

Edible Chemistry Kit.  Not only are they learning but they’re having fun doing it and even tasting their science.  This kit includes 16 edible experiments.  This kit would be fun for all ages and perfects for those rainy thunderstorm days.  At only $18 that works out to just a little over $1 per experiment!


Ladybug Land with Live Larvae.  Raise your own ladybugs from larvae.  This kit comes with everything you need. Learn about the life cycle of a lady bug.  Learn about the benefits of lady bugs and have a release day over the summer if you like.

How about letting them learn to build their own video game.  I can see myself now, “Nope no more video games. Time for you to go learn to  make your own video games” My kids would think I’m either joking or finally lost my mind.  But for $20 this set will let you do just that.

One of my favorite deals that Educents offers is the Magic School Bus 1 yr science club subscriptions. Educents has it 50% off and the kids will get a new kit every month for an entire year!  Lots of rainy day or “I’m bored” fixes!


If none of these are your cup of tea, Educents has tons of educational kits, books, activities, and toys.


Don’t let your child get behind this summer.  Tutoring can also be the edge kids need to catch up or stay ahead of the curve.  You can find tutoring options for in-person and even online.  Check tuition rates for your area.
