DescriptionFriday, August 5: Bugs in Summer, 10am to Noon
Summer is the best time to see lots and lots of bugs! You can meet some live bugs and worms that have been living in weedy fields, soil, and under water. You also can see and touch preserved bugs, plus egg cases, cocoons, and other shelters made by bugs. Expect the Great Outdoors and play dough table to be overrun with pretend bugs.

Friday, August 12: Seashells and Sharks, 10am to Noon
To find out what lives in the salty sea,you can sift shells from sand, make a shell collection and a shell craft, and see and sort colorful shells from around the world. Then stare into the tooth-filled jaws of preserved bull and sand sharks and collect fossil teeth from sharks that lived in Africa at the end of dinosaur times. There will be lots of plastic and plush sea life in the Great Outdoors, plus smaller plastic sea life at the play dough table.

Friday, August 19: Rivers and Currents (With Extra Bubbles), 10am to Noon
Lather up for this weekend's Bubble Works with a special edition of our popular Rivers and Currents program! You might get a little foamy as you make extra bubbly rivers and currents at the art room's water tables. Can you make a wind-powered boat, or one that keeps floating in rough water? What happens to bubbles and foam that land in moving air and water? Stop by the outdoor pool to play with boats and bubble juice. We will also play with pretend water using toy boats on the train table and plastic water creatures in blue play dough.

Friday, August 26:: What's Inside. 10am to Noon
Today we will use our senses of touch, hearing, and sight to discover what's inside a variety of natural and human-made objects. Reach inside a box and let your senses of touch tell you what it holds. Shake a container to see if you can tell what's inside just by listening. We also will look at X-rays of skeletons, break open pods and cut into fruits to find the seeds inside, and take apart toys to see if we can figure out how they work. Plus there will be magic tricks that you can figure out once you look below the surface.
