Thursday, August 6th
Enjoy activities on your own schedule.
Each activity takes about 30 minutes.
Arts & Crafts Cabin
Rocket Straws and Shooting Stars
An elevated, acceptable version of a forbidden childhood classic: spitballs.
Outdoor Adventure: Meteorite Dodgeball
Take turns with a small, medium sized, SOFT ball, and have fun trying to avoid the “meteorite”. Explain that a meteor is like an asteroid but a meteorite is a meteor that actually comes to earth. We want to avoid the incoming meteorite at all costs!
Mad Scientist: Ecosystems and Habitats
Take one of our most engaging classes — Ecosystems and Habitats
Indoor Activity: Comet Collecting
Since the Comet NEOWISE is visible (and a part of our stargazing activity today!), its a good day to find three elements around the house that make up a comet: ice, rock, metal. Place them in a container…...and there you have the ingredients for a COMET!
Family Movie Night
Revisit this fabulously 80’s film in which a little boy befriends an extra terrestrial stuck on Earth (and show your kids its okay to cry!).
