Reptile Creations was one of four programs offered this winter and the only one I manage to remember to take photos. The children had a good time creating their special creature. Lucy watched, as always.

Wednesday, December 17 our after school participants learned about seeds, leaves and trees of New York. We identified seeds. We learned about the two types of leaves – simple and compound and then put that knowledge to the test by identifying some leaves. Then we made pinecone ornaments while eating cookies and drinking punch. A few made leaf rubbings, too. I’m sorry you missed the class. There was lots of glitter!

We learned many new facts about our creatures of the night. Following the program the participants were able to create their own flying bat and enjoy Halloween treats.

We are sorry you missed this great program on Wildflowers of New York. We investigated flower shapes and put our knowledge to the test by viewing slides of flowers, identifying their shape and looking up their information in the flower guide. It was easy, fun and educational! Our sole attendee shared his knowledge of flowers and he’s only six years old. What a smart young man. We created flowers using pre-cut shapes, beads and colored wire. What do you think of his bouquet? Simply wonderful, I say.
If you missed this class, the next after school discovery program is October 8 from 3:30 to 4:30pm and the study will be on Seashore Life with a seashell craft. See you then!
