In 2015, the summer begins with the solstice on June 21 at 12:38 P.M. EDT. This year, Father’s Day is also celebrated on the 21st!
The word solstice is from the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time (and again at the winter solstice). In temperate regions, we notice that the Sun is higher in the sky throughout the day, and its rays strike Earth at a more direct angle, causing the efficient warming we call summer.

This summer solstice is the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year. Look at this nifty Sunrise and sunset calculator located at FarmersAlmanac.com for how many hours of sunlight you’ll get at your location.

PBS Parents, along with a wonderful article from Science Buddies, offer some fun summer projects for kids. When you get to the website enjoy reading the article and learn about fun summer projects like: 

  • Really Big Bubble Makers
  • Bird Feeders
  • Sun Prints
  • Newspaper Kites
  • Silly Putty
  • Salt/Cloud Dough
  • Ooblek/Slime/Gak/Flubber
Don’t stop there though! Continue by investigating the sidebar links to find:

100+ Goo Recipes

Age Range:  All (with parental supervision)

One of the greatest ways to introduce kids to science is through experiments that involve mixing things together to create something new, interesting, odd, strange, weird and fun!

There are no bells and whistles at this website, just a simple archive of over 100 recipes for concoctions like slime, play dough, silly putty, and more. (Sometimes, simplicity is so refreshing, isn’t it?)

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of recipes divided into categories that include:

*Dough’s – Get recipes for play doughs made from flour, coffee, cornmeal, oatmeal, peanut butter, and more!

*Clay, Goo & other Compounds – Make chocolate clay, clean mud, and the popular non-Newtonian solid using cornstarch and water. Make clay from dryer lint and Kool-Aid, make GAK (using borax and Elmer’s glue), get recipes for sand clay, silly putty, and slime!

*Papier-mâché – Use dryer lint, strips of paper, and pastes of all textures to create imaginative designs.
 
*Paints, Dyes and Crayons – Learn to make your own chalk, bubble solution, make-up, clown paint, bath paint, finger paint, egg yolk paint, puffy paint, salt paint, and pudding paint. You’ll even find instructions for coloring rice and pasta.
 
*Bubbles, Chalk , Stamps, Make-up – Get recipes for all kinds of bubble solutions, make sidewalk chalk, and create your own fruit-flavored stamps.

*Art, Activities, Gifts – Try your hand at candle-making, make salt sculptures, preserve flowers, make ornaments and bath salts.

Click on any one to get the instructions. Then, your kids can mix potions (just like real chemists!) and make fun substances that they can use for open-ended play or to use in arts and crafts projects. Great fun!
