Hello, hello, hello!
I’m coming at your from a wonderful, long weekend, full of friends, family, and sunshine. It’s late Sunday night and I haven’t had a chance to blog about our field trip on Thursday- I’ll blame this guy…
Does that cute face make up for my late posting? I’m going to say yes 🙂
On Thursday, summer school took a field trip to a Children’s Museum near our school, a hands-on, active learning/play center. It’s a great place, one I’d been too a couple of times as a kid (although not in the nice, new building location!) So I knew I was very excited to go and see if it was all that I remembered it to be (especially the grocery shopping area, it was the BEST!)
So as soon as the kiddlets got to school, we boarded the buses and headed out.
The kids wasted no time, they immediately jumped in and began playing, learning, and exploring! One of the places I loved was the Sandwich shop, where the kids made “sandwiches”, scooped ice cream, and a generous student sold it all to me for only one dollar! Now that’s a bargain! 🙂
The sound room was also great! The kids banged, boomed, and rang their way through the exhibit and couldn’t have had more fun!
My favorite room was the Water Works. The kids shrieked and giggled as they turned the different knobs, pushed the buttons, and cranked the levers which squirted water all over the place!
They practiced being vets and taking care of animals…
learned about light and electricity…
played with trains…
and perhaps their favorite- face paint! Now, I’m going to be honest- I’m not entirely sure what they were suppose to be learning about at this station, but it sure was good fun!
They got very creative with their face paint!
The time went by WAY too quickly, as it always does on field trips, and before we knew it, we were loading back on the buses and heading back to school.
It was a great time and I really think all the kids had a blast. Since this summer school is an enrichment program, it’s nice to take time out for fun experiences like this one.
And now, because I’m since ub-sessed with all things wedding, here is another one of my fav pictures from a few weeks ago…
Good night and I can’t wait to see all my smiling friends faces tomorrow! 🙂
