Ice-Cream

Desert Animals & Tide Pools

On July 15 our last summer break classes were about Desert Animals and Tide Pools. The participants created a mandela sand art and a wind chime out of a star fish and sea urchin spines. The string for the wind chimes was not the easiest to knot, so adults had to assist. There are no photos of the chimes because I was peeling hot glue from my fingers. Sorry.

Insects & Nature Mozaics

July 14 was all about Insects and the second program was nature-themed mozaics.

Forests & Reptiles

July 13, our summer break programs were about forests, pinecones, and reptiles. We created a tree disc, planted a real pine tree to take home and painted a reptile.

Leaf & Flower Press

July 12 was leaf/flower presses along with individualizing a water bottle holder.
