cute graphic of the sun - to celebrate summer

 

Summer Solstice

Today, June 21 is the first day of summer. The first day of summer is known as the Summer Solstice.  It is the longest day of the year when the sun is farthest north.  In the United States, there are about 14 1/2 hours of daylight on this day.

Maybe you can mark this day by playing fun songs that have the word “sun” in them, ie, Good Morning Sunshine, Your are the Sunshine of My Life, Good Day Sunshine, Walking on Sunshine, and others.

Celebrate – it’s summer!
