Looking to nurture your child's self-esteem while making this their best summer yet? It's not too late to use your kid's Sun sign to plan some exciting summer activities for them!

Aries
Though Aries children love to be independent, team sports can help these feisty youngsters learn how to play well with others, while still providing them with a healthy dose of competition. Try getting them started on a swim team or another summer sporting activity.

Taurus
Taurus kids may simply want to laze away their summer days in front of the TV or computer, but these Earth sign kids will thrive if you kick them out into nature -- even if they resist at first. Start a garden together, or perhaps take them on a short hike to teach them about local flora.

Gemini
Gemini kids enjoy learning, though they're likely enjoy a break from the formal structure of school. Expose them to new experiences, books and people over the summer, and make sure they have plenty of opportunities to communicate with whomever they meet along the way.

Cancer
Home-loving Cancer kids may not want to leave their bedroom over the summer, but you can probably lure them out with the promise of learning about food. A cooking class or similar culinary experience will help these sensitive children connect with something they care about.

Leo
Summer will be fun for Leo kids as long as they have plenty of time to plan their own activities. Whether they're making up their own plays or bossing around all the other kids on the block, these youngsters always need to express themselves in creative ways.

Virgo kids have a fascination with health and medicine, so sign them up for a class on medicinal herbs or first aid. They'll also -- believe it or not! -- enjoy clearing their closet and getting it ready for fall.

Libra
Libra kids will want to spend time with their friends this summer enjoying social activities that will allow them to simply hang out and talk. This sign's artistic nature would do well with a painting or drawing class that will enable them to explore their innate sense of harmony.

Scorpio
Scorpio kids make great detectives since they love to seek out hidden information and solve mysteries. Put your kid to work on finding something that's missing, and be sure to provide them with plenty of detective novels to read!

Sagittarius
Summertime adventure is a necessity for a Sagittarius child. Foreign travel -- or even just a camping trip in your area -- will help expand their infinitely curious mind.

Capricorn
Though Capricorn children might seem mature before their years, they still need opportunities to just have fun and play. An enjoyable activity for their entrepreneurial minds will likely involve making money, so help them set up a lemonade stand or similar micro-business.

Aquarius
Aquarius kids possess a deep affinity for outer space, so an astronomy class or a trip to a local observatory will help pave the way toward a summer of otherworldly exploration.

Pisces
Pisces youngsters need plenty of time to let their imagination roam without worrying about what time it is. Art supplies and exposure to nature will give this sensitive child everything they need to make the most of their summer vacation.
