The Summer is Over! But, Have No Fear!
The Lunchbox Season will be up and running in early September!
Summer of Funner would like to THANK YOU for a FABULOUS SUMMER! If you have a look at our original 2013 Summer Bucket List, to the right, you’ll notice we ticked off most of Summer Must-Haves! And we managed to write posts for most of them, too!: Play Ping-Pong, Paint with Home-made Ice Paints, Play Candy Math, Discover Toronto’s Neighbourhoods, ReadTales of Mystery & Imagination, Make Pink Lemonade Jelly and AMAZING PINK LEMONADE CREAM BARS, Decorate & Draw in our Yesterday Books, Visit Family in Boston, Take Long Naps, Have Paper Airplane Races, Try Homemade Greek Yogurt Popsicles, Invent a Dystopia & Write its Hero Story, Bake from thePeaches Cookbook, Make Pickles, Read & Write “Villain” Poems,“Map” Gulliver’s Travels, Learn About Weather Science, Have a Backyard Camp-Out!, Imagine Like Bradbury!, Water Games, Learn New Piano Music, Bake Strawberry
Donuts [Cognac] Buttermilk Cake, Read Asterix! Tin-Tin in French, Act-Out a few lines from Shakespeare on the Porch, Illustrate a Scene from the Faerie Queene, Try “Face” Painting, Make a Mess in the Bathtub, Create Cardboard Cities Targets for Party Games, Have our annual Summer of Funner Film Festival!, Rewrite Beowulf, Tell Ghost Stories.
And we’re still looking forward to trying the remainder of our ideas in the next nine months on our sister site, The Lunchbox Season: Make Newspaper Boats, Go Bird-Watching, Make and Use Tin-Can Telephones, Kids Make Dinner for Mama & Papa, Create & Play Outdoor Scrabble, Design and Fly Paper Kites, Try Homemade Limeade, Make Marionettes. In fact, we’ll be creating a whole new “Bucket List” for Fall 2013 with a sampling of these these and several more activities!!!
Also, we have a bit of good news! We have grown by leaps and bounds! So much so, that over the next few days, we’ll be transitioning Summer of Funner [www.summeroffunner.com], The Lunchbox Season [www.thelunchboxseason.com] and In Defense of Burning [www.roseannecarrara.com] to a self-hosted platform. No worries! We’ll still have the same web addresses! And if you’re one of our lucky subscribers, we have it on good authority that your subscriptions will remain in tact! Self-hosting, however, will give us the flexibility to manage what you see and don’t see on the site, to make our pages even more beautiful, and to amp up our involvement in the online community. We have some more good news regarding a specific new family-friendly partnership for Summer of Funner and The Lunchbox Season, but we’ll be keeping that mum until things become a bit more official this fall.
Best to you all!
And we hope to see you over at The Lunchbox Season in just a few days!!!
