Time flies, especially during childhood. You probably feel like your 6 year old is growing up so fast! Keep him or her active, smiling, and learning all year long with this list of engaging, educational activities for 6 year olds.

At six, your child can dress herself and catch a ball more easily with her hands. He can tie his shoes and he's learning a new word every single day. Growing minds need stimulation and the educational and easy activities on this list help to foster that growth. 

The activities on this list combine fun with learning. As a bonus, all are incredibly simple to set up – or require no set-up at all. Encourage your child to practice adding and math skills by tossing bright bean bags, help them learn about the wind and weather by building a wind vane, or just have some fun together by sliding with paper plates. From making Playdough to cooking up something good from a colorful kid's recipe book, the list has something for every six year old.

Banish those rainy day blues and eliminate summer boredom with these activity ideas for six year olds. Upvote the games that seem like the most fun!
