Our scientists had a fantastic time exploring all the exhibits and displays at the Museum of Science yesterday. They learned about the science of the playground, dinosaurs, fossils, animals, motion, water, and so much more. We even had a special opportunity to explore the Butterfly Garden where some children were even lucky enough to have butterflies land right on them!
Today, we headed off to the pool for a nice refreshing dip in the water! The children had a blast getting cooled off in the water! We have some amazing swimmers at camp this year. They are sad to get out when it is time to get ready to return to camp.
Also today, everyone went home with a special gift. We made a special Sunshine Group Recipe book that includes the ingredients and directions for oobleck, play-doh, and ice cream. You can download and print this book at the link below.
Next week’s theme is Let’s Make Noise! Our field trip is going to be to the Bellingham Movie Theater where we will be seeing Brave. We have our own special showing at the theater. It will be brighter and the sound will not be nearly as loud as it usually is at the movies. The concession stand will not be open while we are there. Please return the permission slip as soon as possible.

It was a little chilly at the pool today but the kids were fish anyway! The water was actually really warm, which made it a little more challenging to get out of the water. Before we went to the pool, we had a great demonstration about football. The children even learned the stance the offensive line uses to protect quarterbacks like Tom Brady!
Yesterday, our field trip was awesome! The weather was perfect and the kids had so much fun out on the lake. Our kayakers did a super job and everyone spent part of the day swimming in the lake too!
Next week is Science Week! We will head to the Science Museum in Boston. This day will be from 9am – 2pm. The permission slip is available below. Please return it as soon as possible.

We like to move it (just like King Julian in Madagascar)! Our bodies are in motion all this week! We will be doing activities related to sports, dance, nutrition, and more. We will even talk about the Olympics which will be starting really soon! Today is a perfect day for a discussion about hydration too. As we work on keeping our bodies in motion, we will also be sure to keep our bodies well hydrated with lots of water and plenty of breaks in the shade.
On Thursday, we will head to Hopkinton State Park for some kayaking and swimming! Make sure to print and bring in this: Hopkinton State Park Permission Slip
