Wicked good time!

We had a great time at the “CMDZ Witches Tea” on Sunday.  The kids were creative making their witch hats and wands.  They enjoyed playing ring toss and pumpkin rolling games and then put there potion making skills to the test stirring up some potions and creating their own worms. They finished the event drinking some witches brew and enjoying some sweet snacks.

Thanks to all our witches and wizards that attended!

Out of the Box Camp

We had a great time at camp this week. Campers created crafts from corrugated boxes. Crafts included making a spinner, alligator jaw, painting a cat or penguin and creating their own sculpture from cardboard squares. Campers then showed off their personal talents creating their own design from boxes and craft items.  Some their creations included a turtle shell, tank, party car and space ship.

Curious Minds would like to thank Walmart for donating the boxes for this week camp.

Lego City

This week we were excited to have Neodesha Kindergarten classes at the museum for a field trip.


During their visit we read the book “Block City” by Robert Louis Stevenson.  The story is about a boy who creates his own city out of blocks.  The students then become very creative, using our extra Legos they worked together to create a city for Ian and Lacey.  They were very imaginative with their creations.  There were buildings that were tall, short, skinny and fat.
