It’s Wednesday. Let’s Go Sailing!

Moana Voyage Still

Ahoy there!

It's time to go on a voyage.

There's a reason an entire genre of books is dedicated to adventure. 

Who doesn't love the idea of traveling from the comforts of their own home? 

Think about the pros.

No running out of money, no icky bathrooms, no ferocious dragon about to bite your head off...

You know, the usual things.

We guarantee an introvert marketed the idea. 

Today, we're going to hit the seven seas by building a pirate ship!

Who needs a night light when you have underwear that glows? 😜

Fireworks. Lightning Bugs. Jellyfish. Stars. 

Things that are pretty. 

*EHHNT* 

Things that sting. 

*EHHNT*

It’s Wednesday. Let’s Go On A Scavenger Hunt!

2017 Spot It

Every summer, Youth Services launches a new scavenger hunt. 

One with fun cartoon characters hidden throughout the 2nd floor. 

And a totally awesome PRIZE!

Oh, the good old days. 

While we can't do one in-person this year,
2018 Map It

Well, almost.

The plus side is that this "scavenger hunt" will last FOREVER! 

You can do it over and over again until you get sick of it or you lose it, whichever comes first.

It’s Wednesday. Let’s Get Salty!

Fingerpainting baby
Any kiddos here love to finger paint? 

How about sprinkling stuff? 

Say salt, for example. 

What does this have to do with painting?

Salt has absorbent properties that heighten light and dark values of pigments.

Depending on how much you use, it also helps create fun textures and patterns. 

The end result? 

Beautiful unique paintings.

Unique because no two salt grains land the same.

So this week, we're going to give salt painting a go!
