Giving Tuesday

Curious Minds is very excited to be working with Parsons Area Community Foundation for the upcoming event “Giving Tuesday”.

Match Day on Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2016, holds incredible opportunity for Curious Minds Discovery Zone. On that day, the Parsons Area Community Foundation will match donations made to our endowment fund—our long term savings.

Donations will allow Curious Minds to continue operation, providing a safe and fun location for children to explore and be creative.  It will also allow us the security for future funds to improve and add new and exciting exhibits thereby making each visit to the museum fresh, offering varying educational experiences for children in our area.

Here’s how it works:

  • Come to the event and make a donation

               Date: Tuesday November 29

               Time: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.

(You may also donate online at parsonsareacf.org, or mail a check to PACF, PO Box 894, Parsons, KS 67357. Envelopes must be postmarked November 28-30 to be eligible for the   match)

  • A $30,000 match pool will be divided between the participating organizations in proportion to the total amount raised. 100% of your donation PLUS the match amount will be placed in our organization’s fund. There will be additional monetary incentives given to the organizations receiving the greatest amount and number of contributions.
  • Refreshments will be provided at the Wall Family Center and we invite you to come in person for an UNselfie picture, holding the enclosed form telling why you give.
  • There is no minimum donation required; however matching funds will only be awarded for donations up to $2500.
  • Cash, credit cards and checks made payable to Parsons Area Community Foundation will be accepted. Receipts will be given on-site, or mailed as needed.
  • Donations are tax deductible and may be divided among multiple organizations.

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!

We are excited for our next Pinterest Party.  At this party we will be creating fabric pumpkins in three different sizes and a cheesecloth ghost.  I will have an assortment of colored fabric for you to choose from for you pumpkins.  If you have a specific color, let me know in advance so that I can get it picked up.  You will enjoy a night of crafting and adult conversation and it would not be a Pinterest Party without some good food to enjoy.  Check out all the details on our Pinterest Events Page!

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.
