We are currently in the middle of the hottest time of the year and a great way to cool off is to go swimming! Go head out to a community pool, yours or your friends pool, or a clean lake. While the relief of the water feels great, it can get a little boring with nothing in particular to do. Get out your swimming skills and dive right in!
Coming up is the USA's 238th anniversary, marking the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed by the 52 men of the Continental Congress. On Fourth of July most people get a day off work to celebrate. So take this opportunity to hang out with your family and try a few of these activities to liven up your day.
Make patriotic cupcakes. Pick up a box of cupcake mix (or make your own) and follow the instructions to make a batch of cupcakes. Once they are cooked, get some toppings and go to town. Try using food coloring to dye white frosting either red or blue. Use sprinkles generously and be creative with your fruit! Freedom will taste even sweeter!
