July is National Parks & Recreation Month

This year, National Parks and Recreation month comes at a time when San José PRNS has been critically involved in many aspects of the COVID-19 crisis response, from distributing food and necessities to tirelessly maintaining parks and trails so that everyone can enjoy the outdoors for their physical and mental health. Our foundation is people – parks and recreation professionals who are dedicated and passionate about delivering our vision: Healthy Communities that Inspire Belonging. We invite you to take “A Walk in the Park,” a podcast series featuring our PRNS team as they share their stories of providing the community with essential services.

Saturday Shenanigans Activities

 Link to Activities  Description
Fourth of July Buttermilk Pie Classic American buttermilk pie, fancied up a bit with red, white, and blue (raspberries, whipped cream, and blueberries).
Patriotic Fruit Kabobs

To create an American flag, thread about 6 blueberries on 4-5 of your skewers, followed by alternating cake and strawberry pieces. Start with cake (just below the blueberries) and end with a strawberry.

 

On 5-7 additional skewers, alternate cake and strawberries, making sure as you go that the fruit and cake align on your skewers to create stripes. The number of skewers you need will depend on the size of flag you want to create.

 

Arrange the skewers on a plate or serving tray to resemble an American flag.

Shaving Cream Fireworks These Shaving Cream Fireworks paintings were just as fun to make as they are to display!
Rocket Launcher
Make July 4th even more exciting with a rocket launching competition in the backyard! This DIY is super simple and only requires a few cups and rubber bands.
