Summer Party For Kids
 
 
CRAFTS

Make Sunglasses:
Cut out front shape of glasses from bristle board, cutting out the center. Color with markers and decorate with stickers. Tape colored cellophane to the front frame to look out of. Punch one hole on either side of the frame and insert pipe cleaners for the arms of the glasses. Bend the arms to go around ears.
Please Note! - These glasses are for fun, but will not protect eyes from the rays of the sun.

Personalized Beach Towels:
Draw a beach scene or other picture on a piece of paper the same size as your towel. When you are happy with the picture, transfer it to the towel in very light pencil. Go over your picture with fabric paints and allow to dry.

Home-Made Chalk:
Mix 1/2 cup water, and 3 tablespoons of plaster of Paris together. Add the color of dry tempera paint that you wish your chalk to be. Pour the mixture into dixie cups and let stand until hard. This may take a few hours, so have the kids take the mixture home as a party favor.

Sun Collage:
Make a collage using construction paper shapes. Do not glue the collage down. Place collage out in the sun and allow the sun to fade the paper. The picture will show darker when the shapes are removed.

Suns:
Cut out a circle and strips from yellow construction paper. Glue the strips around the circle to make a sun.

Set Up a Beach:
Picnic baskets, pails, shovels, blankets, sunglasses, hats, etc.

GAMES

Sea Shell Game:
Hide an object under 1 of 3 shells and have children find it. Similar to the old shell game.

Hopscotch:
If outdoors, use chalk on driveway or sidewalk.
If indoors, use a large sheet of paper to create your hopscotch game.

SONGS

Oh, Mr. Sun

Oh, Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun
Won't you please shine down on me.
Oh, Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun
Hiding behind the tree.
These little children are asking you
To please come out so they can play with you.
Oh, Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun
Won't you please shine down on,
please shine down on,
please shine down on me-e-e!

You Are My Sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You'll never know dear how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.
