Sparkle Weekly Wonderings

It’s been a record year in so many parts of the world. In Texas, we started in June with 100-degree weather and have seen many a searing day since. (As I write this, it’s 108 in Austin.)

This week we’ve put together our best and Sparkliest suggestions for enjoying (or surviving) the heat of summer.

Of course, we have stories — some of which will inspire your children to create their own summer fun. We also have heaps of recipes for cooling down and activities to enjoy in and out of the hot sun.

Enjoy! And stay cool!

About the Author

David Sewell McCann
Story Spinner

David Sewell McCann fell in love with spinning stories in first grade – the day a storyteller came to his class and captured his mind and imagination. He has been engaged in storytelling all of his adult life through painting, film-making, teaching and performing. Out of his experience as a Waldorf elementary class teacher and parent, he has developed a four step method of intuitive storytelling, which he now shares through workshops and through this website.
