Activity 3: A Makeshift Summer Day 

Depending on where you live, "spring break" may come at a time when you're still months away from enjoying the deliciousness of a lazy day at the outdoor neighborhood pool. But you can celebrate the impending warmer months by planning an outing to your county recreation center and its indoor pool facilities.

What to Bring: Pack sandwiches, fun snacks and a change of clothes and pack the taste of summer into a day at the indoor pool. To make this even more fun for the kids, ask them to pretend that they're heading to the beach in the dead of summer. What would they need to pack? What sorts of games would they want with them? Creating the aura of make-believe around the outing will make it all the more fun for your crew.
