Summertime at Home with Kids Corner

Summertime at Home with Kids Corner

May 26, 2022

Congratulations! You made it to the end of another school year and now your family is easing into a welcome summer break. Inevitably, all that free time catches up to kids, and they’re looking for things to do.

At Kids Corner, we recognize the need for families to have safe and fun resources at home. Start with our weekly Kids Corner Devotions. Each includes a Bible reading, reflection, and prayer. Kids will also enjoy the Casey’s Day comic strips.

We’ve also created the “I’m At-Home List” and the “I’m At Home This Summer List.” Both share fun and faith-forming activities with minimal set-up or parent perspiration! Each day, try to do something from every category.

During their “screen-free time,” your children can enjoy KC’s Liz and Friends story podcast. With over 260 different stories, your children can dive into fun adventures with Liz and his pals. Each episode is 25 minutes of immersive faith formation learning and creative theater of the mind. These are perfect for vacation road trips, too.

Try these fun stories:

  • Summer Blues Everything is going wrong for Liz this summer, and he can’t figure out how to fix his summer blues.

  • Wilderness Club On a camping trip, Liz and the gang must learn to work together to survive in the wilderness and to rescue a friend!

  • Lights Out! Terrene’s power has gone out. When the kids complain that there’s nothing to do, Granny sends them on an adventure to Falcon’s Wood. What’s Scooter worried about? And Liz better watch where he’s going!

  • Sinful Saturday One sin leads to another, and adventures quickly turn to nightmares. As always, little sins grow.

The Kids Corner Activity Page is loaded with crafts, activity books, coloring pages, puzzles, songs, and ebooks. All free to download.

When it is screen time, check out our Kids in Action videos, all about real kids doing real things serving God’s kingdom. Perhaps they’ll inspire your children about what they can do to show God’s love now.

Are the kids ready to spend some time learning something? We invite them to go through our God’s Big Story seven lesson, animated video Bible study. Complete the series to win a prize.

Whether you have kids at home or want to provide free resources to your church community, we think that you’ll find something useful at kidscorner.net. Be sure to sign up for our weekly Kids Corner Devotional.
