From Mollie and the gang in Wednesday's Open Program:
The Wednesday Open Program recently welcomed Visiting Artists, Brie Jontry and Michael Masterson, who braved the last rain storm to share a fabulous felting activity with us. Thank you again!
Another highlight has been the ever changing Science activities. We've explored wind, weather and flight. String telephones were created using plastic cups, string, yarn and fishing line. We continue our experiments with Snap Circuits and Spin Art.
Speaking of art, last week some of us created our own printing blocks. We also built robots and other creations out of recyclables and showed them at group time.
Conceptual Development activities we've explored include Pegboards, Wedgits and Attribute Blocks. Our latest collaborative project was building a marble run that reached from the top of the farthest environment to the group area. We've also played Charades. Just last week some of the older Open Programmers created an obstacle course in the mini-gym for all to join. We continue to explore the beautiful OC property and recently hiked to the White Pines to see the forts built by the Naturalist Group.
