Set Up  A Talent Show 

Everyone has something they are good at. Invite your friends, family, and neighbors to show off what they can do well or watch what others are doing.

You can plan this for a future date so participants can practice, or set up something spur of the moment. Ask everyone to bring a little something to share (food or drink) as admission, and set up a table in your yard, or at a park so everyone can access it.

Keep the show positive and encouraging because it takes a lot of guts to get up in front of people to show your stuff.

Are awards really needed or is getting up and sharing what you can do enough?

Some of the things people can do:

Sing, recite a poem, read a passage from their favorite book in a dramatic way, act something out, juggle, do a puppet show, tell a story, magic tricks, draw, etc..

Have fun ending the summer on a fun and entertaining note.

French Fry Project

Have you ever wondered where French fries got their start or how they are made for commercial use?
Keep reading to find out!

French fries have been around for centuries, and while no one is exactly sure who invented them first, we do know that they originated in either Belgium or France. There’s an interesting history in the argument about who fried the potato first, and if you’re interested in learning more about it, you’ll find some information below.

What can you do with French fries other than eat them? 

Experiment with them!

Experiment #1: How Long Does A French Fry Take To Decay?

You will need: Any French fry & A plate
Directions: Make French fries or purchase them from a restaurant. Then place a few on a plate and observe them each day until they decay. Try comparing a commercial fry to a homemade one.
Experiment #2: French Fry Taste Test: 
What Type Of Potatoes Make The Best French Fries?
You will need: A variety of fresh potatoes, washed and dried, a cutting board, a sharp knife, olive or vegetable oil, salt, pepper and your favorite herbs and spices.
Oven proof pans, fryer, or skillet, and paper towels
Directions: Cut your potatoes into even strips. Then place them in separate bowls and toss them with a little oil to prevent them from browning while you cut the other potatoes. Cook your potatoes using your favorite cooking method: Baked, deep fried or pan fried.
If you decide to bake them, put some oil on the pan and season it before adding them to the oven, otherwise, season your fries as soon as you get them out of the oil and onto the paper towels.
Taste each potato type and choose which potato makes the best French fry in your opinion. Try different cooking methods too.
If you need them, some cooking methods with instructions can be found in the video selection.
