Fun-Filled Summer Days

Summer is the time for families to play and to enjoy open-ended activities. Water play, blocks, reading, cooking, visiting museums, picnics, and taking day trips are ways to relax and have fun while children can still continue to learn about our world.

Neighborhood block potluck parties are also popular in the warm weather.

Tasting the neighbors’ foods is one of the best parts of the potluck.
