    Any summer break needs at least one beach day. You can head to the nearest beach with friends or family. Pack a cooler with snacks, drinks, and maybe a ball or two for a game of volleyball.

    The beach is always an easy bet for a fun day trip or even longer. Spending the day swimming and tanning is always a fun time.

    Many different games can be played over the summer, ranging from board, physical, and online. There are a variety of games to play or come up with.

    You can also make some fun crafts with your friends. One that is becoming very popular throughout social media is a bikini box. These boxes can be decorated and painted in many different ways. 

    Now that quarter three is over, the countdown to summer begins. As of April 17, there are only 41 school days left until summer break begins.
