Wednesday July 23rd is all about FOOD
Events at 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, and 4:30pm

10:30-Food is the focus of the Day.  This session is all about Humpty Dumpty and EGGS! Stories, action activities and even an experiment or two.

12:30-Bread and Water - Our stories will be about bread - making it, eating it.  But then what happens when you add germs and water?  Good and bad hygiene?  Come find out.  This session is for preschoolers and possibly lower elementary grades.

2:30-Food for Thought -We will be sharing a "Food" book, and then doing some science experiments that involve food.  This session is for school age children.

4:30-Candy Land - This session is all about candy.  We won't be eating candy, but we will be doing experiments with candy.  WARNING:  children with severe allergies (especially to peanuts) might want to avoid this session, as I can't guarentee completely peanut free or other allergens free candy.  This event is for students in Kindergarten and older grades.
