Activities to Cure Summer Boredom

Activities to Cure Summer Boredom

Summer is here! Since school is out, your kids are sure to have a lot of extra time on their hands and Sweetology has many ideas to cure your summer boredom! Here are some fun summer activities to try out!


Summer Cake Decorating Camp - Virtual or In-Person

Occupy long summer days and conquer summer boredom by finding a summer camp near you! If your child loves sweets and being creative, our summer cake camp is a great option! Campers will be taught how to decorate cakes, cookies, and cupcakes using different decorating techniques and tools. Campers will work with buttercream, royal icing, fondant, and more! Each day will focus on a new product culminating in a final show stopper. At the end of each day, campers will go home with their own edible masterpieces!

Choose from one of our three Summer Camp themes: Faux Food, Rainbow Rush, and Unicorns and Magical Creatures.

Educational Summer Activities - Science Kits

Continue learning throughout the summer months by exploring volcanos, the solar system, and the layers of the earth. Sweetology Create & Learn project kits provide hands-on fun with edible, educational projects that will spark learning and discovery. Projects help build awareness of our connection to nature, practice color mixing, measuring, and help to develop fine motor and visual skills. The only thing kids will love more than creating these projects is eating them!
