Teen Summer Game Day #2

The "Teen Summer Game Day" of July turned out to be a big success. There were 14 teens who came to play with us. Here is a list of the games we played on July 7, 2010.


2. Chinese Chess

3. Riddle Race

4. 4 take four

5. Freeze frame

6. Roll ‘n multiply

7. Quixo

8. Quads

9. Batik
10. Picture Picture

The games were taught quickly and teens were able to play with other teens. Playing games gets everyone to think and use their solving skills. We also played Picture Picture on the big screen. Picture Picture is a game where everyone has to fill in a unique answer for letters A-Z. This game included everyone and there were many creative answers. Our winner even got a prize.

The good thing about this "Teen Summer Game Day" is that it gets teens familiar with the games that are available to them. It is something that can be taken home to play with parents, grandparents, and friends. These games are really great and they get everyone to participate. And we want to remind you that everything at PERC will be a useful resource for parents. We hope that all the teens had a fun time at the July- "Teens Summer Game Day," Now we will be coming upon our last "Teen Summer Game Day" for the summer. The date will be on August 4, 2010, a Wednesday-- we would love to see more teens there!

Independence Day!

Fourth of July is Independence Day
"Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It's a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag." (

We wish you all a happy and safe Independence Day! Whatever your plans are, we hope that you have fun spending time with your children; while teaching them a little American History!
