ABCs of Summer: A

July 3rd, 2017


Welcome to our first blog of Summer 2017! We are bringing back an oldie but goodie: the ABCs of Summer. We did this series 5 summers ago and now it’s time for a fresh take on this simple but classic theme. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we will feature a different letter of the alphabet along with a few ideas for things to do that start with that letter. 

We encourage additional suggestions, so please leave your own ideas in the comments – but stick to activities that start with that day’s letter! 

Here’s A:
