Well, summer is a delightful time, but it can also be stressful for parents. Keeping kids entertained and engaged during summer break can be challenging. That’s why it’s great to have a resource bank of ideas that are fun and educational!

These guides are available in PDF format. To read them, you will need a PDF reader (such as Adobe Reader) or any App on your mobile device that is capable of reading eBooks and PDFs.

There are many free tools out there to convert these PDF guides to EPUB and to use as eBooks. One tool we suggest is COVERTIO.

It is important to have a look at the expert guidelines around screentime. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry recommends:

  • No screen time for children younger than 2 years old.
  • For children 2 to 5 years old, limit routine or regular non-educational screen time to less than 1 hour per day. Educational screen time should also be heavily limited to allow for social and emotional learning experiences with others.
  • Ensure that sedentary screen time is not a routine part of child care.
  • Maintain daily ‘screen-free’ times, especially for family meals and story time. 
  • Avoid screens for at least 1 hour before bedtime, given the potential for melatonin-suppressing effects. 


It’s also important for adults, parents, and caregivers to model good screen time use. If a child sees that the adults in their lives are constantly looking at screens, they are going to assume it is acceptable. If possible, have limits for the adults in your family too, and try to participate in family activities offscreen that focus on child development and language acquisition. 

Take a look at this video where pediatrician Dr. Barbara Gablehouse addresses the topic of screen time and exercise for kids.
