On this rainy week of Summer Fun, we have gotten up close and personal with some amazing insects. Learning all about bugs, we’ve had bug hunts, special ladybug snacks, lots of fun and cute crafts! Here’s a look at our week:
What a great first week of Summer Fun here at MBPCP! We explored the “Mysteries of the Earth” by digging deep to discover fossils, rocks, dinosaurs and more. Our summer detectives had an archaeology dig, adopted pet rocks and made their own fossils.
We can’t wait to see what’s in store for next week, when we see what can grow in the earth, with our theme “Seed to Food: the Life Cycle of Plants”!
Our program this summer is going to be FULL of imagination, creativity, science and special events!
Here are a few reminders and some fun news, so your child can enjoy every second of our Summer Fun Program, “It’s Elementary”!
Sunshine Bunch (8:00-9:00) & Wee Play (1:00-2:15) will also be offered this summer.
