Sticking with our space theme we reviewed the order of our planets and then learned the difference between rotation and revolution. Thank you to Mason, Graham C and Emma for being our sun, earth and moon.
We kicked off our School Aged Program this afternoon and was amazed with 33 participants!!! Unbelievable!!! Today we talked about our solar system and the planets that we share it with. Did you know that it takes Neptune 164.8 years to circle the sun? They also worked on a couple of projects making solar systems.
On August 11th we had our End of the Summer Party and the kids had a ton of fun with the different actives. We ate pizza, had floats and cookies to eat and then it was time to draw for all the wonderful prizes that we had to give away. We also ended the summer giving away two backpacks (one Ninja Turtle and one Frozen) that were full of school supplies. A huge Thank You to Andrew at Cenex for suppling the pizza to us at half price!!!
On August 4th we enjoyed the theme of Flying. The weather was pretty cool and damp so we held our activities inside. After a few stories the kids flew rockets threw some hoops to win sundaes and then it was time for the main event. The kids painted canvases with fly swatters!!! They had a ton of fun and didn’t make near the mess I thought they would.
We had another fabulous Storytime on July 28th when Jeff Quinn from Omaha NE came to amaze us with magic tricks!!! I am still wondering how he pulled off some of his tricks. A huge thank you to Amie V. for coming over to take the photos and all the kids who volunteered and helped with the performance.
