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!

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 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.
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.
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.
