We had a blast!!!
What a wonderful April vacation we've had! We started out on Tuesday afternoon with a visit from Keith Michael Johnson, otherwise known as THE AMAZING BUBBLEMAN---and he was--Amazing!!! Over 60 children gathered to "oooh" and "ahhh" at the bubbles, and laugh at loud at his antics. The 30+ adults that were here had just as much fun as the kids (maybe even more, if that's possible!).
On Wednesday, we hosted a TEDDY BEAR SLEEPOVER---and what a grand time they had! First, we enjoyed a teddy-bear storyhour, complete with teddy-snacks and a short movie. Next, we made pillows for each of our special stuffed lovies...And finally, each child tucked his or herstuffed animal into a special spot in the Children's Room, to sleep for the night. Miss Sarah and Miss Melody took pictures of all the mischief they got into while they were supposed to be asleep! By opening time on Thursday morning, all the animals were quietly sitting on a shelf, ready to be picked up by their loved ones....
And on Thursday morning, we were lucky enough to have a visit from a staff member and some animals from the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne State Park. Scott brought a selection of tidal pool creatures to show to the children. They learned a lot about these animals, and had a chance to gently handle them.
