Alphabet Activities

Summer break is a great time to unwind and relax, to catch up with family and friends,  to go on a holiday and basically just chill(ie if you can in the hot weather). And for kids its no different, it simply means enjoyment and fun. But its also that time of the year when there is a substantial learning loss. So how do we get the kids to engage in some constructive learning  without making them feel like the kid below?
