Sunglasses Quiz 🌞

Here is a brief CST activities page to help celebrate the summer weather we are currently enjoying.

Before completing the quiz bit, discuss the best things about summer ...

- Sunny, warm and dry days

- Days out and day trips

- Summer holidays

- Sun bathing

- Sitting in the garden and chilling

- Barbecues and picnics

What about the not so good things?

- Too hot to go outdoors

- Having to water the garden

- Getting sunburnt

- Feeling tired

- Hayfever

- Thunderstorms

Discuss this poster and skin health generally.


Next, identify the following people wearing sunglasses and say what they were or are famous for ... (if you click on the first picture a slide show will open)

OR you could play 'Link The Song To The Person'.

Here are my top 10 favourite summer songs. Maybe play a few ...

'Waterloo Sunset', 'The Kinks' -

'Cloudbusting', Kate Bush -

'Aquarius; Let The Sunshine In', 'The 5th Dimension' -

'Sunny Afternoon', 'The Kinks' -

'You Are The Sunshine Of My Life', Stevie Wonder -

'Mr Blue Sky', 'The Electric Light Orchestra' -

'Here Comes The Sun', 'The Beatles' -

'In The Summertime', Mongo Jerry -

Ask members to name their favourite summer songs.

Ideas for a practical activity could include painting rainbows, because June is 'Pride Month'.

Or you could take photos of members in summer hats and sunglasses.

Or you could go outside if sunny to have a glass of squash and enjoy sunbathing for a few minutes (remember the factor 50 suncream). Take in the view, enjoy the colours, listen out for birdsong, smell the fragrances, feel the textures and maybe taste some herbs or edible flowers.
