ADVENTURES AT HOME: Coffee Filter Art.  Open a coffee filter. Draw, write, scribble, or doodle with water soluble markers (eg. not a Sharpie) and then add water with a water dropper to make soft and interesting art.  We hung ours to dry and then left them hanging for a few days to “decorate the dining room.” What happens with just a little water? More water? It’s fun to experiment. Find more ideas for summer fun at home here.

LOCAL ADVENTURES: This weekend (June 28 & 29), Arabia Alliance is offering FREE bike rentals at Panola Mountain State Park.  The Alexander Lake Loop along the Arabia Mountain PATH (AMP) hike-bike trail is a perfect, albeit hilly, ride and makes a wonderful morning or afternoon outing. Perfect for parents who want to ride with the kids but don’t yet have their own bike.  Bike are available first-come for limited times.  In the future, bikes will be available for hourly or daily rentals to explore the AMP.  Find more ideas for your summer bucket list here.
