Busy parents and caregivers who are looking for affordable and meaningful recreational pursuits for their kids this summer will find a gold mine of opportunity through Panhandle PBS, and all of it is totally free.

PBS KIDS promises a Summer of Adventure, with oodles of games and activities that support literacy, math, science, and that thing family members of every age just can’t get enough of – fun! 

Playing grocery store bingo, making frozen chalk paint, and discovering creative ways to enjoy summer reading are just some of the tips PBS KIDS offers in abundance for families looking to share the excitement of learning, while making summertime memories of a lifetime.

“Experts and educators tell us that kids who have been reading and working on math skills through games and activities tend best to bridge the learning gap that can take place over the summer,” said Cullen Lutz, community development specialist at Panhandle PBS.

“We would love for our area parents, caregivers, and children to take advantage of the free and enjoyable offerings through PBS KIDS, a truly trusted, non-commercial resource that’s all about sparking creativity and curiosity.”

PBS KIDS can be accessed for free anytime, whether at home or on the go, with articles aplenty that explain the strategies and value of all the suggested activities. In addition to the inspiring animated adventures for which PBS is widely known on the television side, the website and streaming-video feature extensive engaging content and printable activity books, reading charts and summer checklists. Area libraries are a great Internet access point for these resources as well.  Families can also sign up for the PBS Kids Newsletter today – it’s easy to do and completely free.

Kids, meanwhile, are sure to delight in family friendly activities like finding math in everyday places, creating power adventure games, making a wild bee hotel, and so much more.

“PBS KIDS Summer of Adventure is another tool in the parents’ tool kit,” Lutz said. “It offers activities and ideas that any family can use to inspire a very fulfilling summer. It’s just a beautiful roadmap that is free and accessible; it’s what public media and Panhandle PBS are all about.”
