The family fun day and making new plans

The family fun day was amazing! Thank you to everyone that came out. Thank you to all of the vendors and a huge thank you to Extreme Ice. It was a great event!
Right now I am filling out paperwork so that we can be in the local 4th of July Parade! I am so excited. I am trying to think of really great decorations for our car and I am also brainstorming ideas of what we can pass out to all of the kids that will line the parade route!
I think that this is going to be great!

New work on the shelves...thinking about summer.

It's May and that makes me think that summer is coming! It was time to change around some work on the shelves for the last few weeks of school.

This isn't really beach themed but I love it and had to share. Spoon some paint on paper, then blow through the straw and the paint moves. Tons of fun! It has been a big hit.

Here is the result.

Another big hit. Cut straws and string the pieces on pipe cleaners.

Fish tray and other sea creatures to pour

Rock polishing

Sand art. Dribble some glue on a piece of paper, then sprinkle sand on it. Shake off excess.

Now it's May. Wrapping up the school year and the family fun day is coming.

May? How is that possible? We opened in February and now the end of the school year is upon us.
Opening the school has been filled with hard work, joy, happy tears, and fun. I'm not sure how 3 months went by so fast.
The work has been changed over on the shelves to a more summery/beach theme. Pictures to come soon. Mother's Day, Father's Day, and end of year projects will be completed in the upcoming weeks too. It's all very exciting.

Here's the latest lineup for the big Family Fun Day.
May 31-3-6pm at Extreme Ice.

We will have food trucks, car seat cleaning, vendors, crafts, activities, story telling, balloon artist, henna tattoo artist, facials, raffles, a canned food drive for Loaves and Fishes, and more.

3:30-3:50-kids zumba
4-5 craft/story telling from Lakeshore Learning
