This is a fun way to get kids of all ages to read over the summertime! Determine how long children have to read, based on their age and ability level. Then, let them read the instructions on the beach ball. When they complete the activity for the required amount of time, they can cut out the ball and glue it to the beach towel. You choose how (or if) you want to reward them for earning a certain number of beach balls, but in my book, an ice cream cone is a great reward!
