DescriptionFriday, August 17: Transportation Works 10am to Noon
Let gravity do the work as you race toy cars down ramps. Then let spinning wheels propel toy cars in loop-de-loops around a battery powered raceway. There will also be more wooden trains than usual, plus an O-scale model railway where you can take your turn as engineer. The play dough table will be set up as a construction site, with diggers, dump trucks, and plastic construction workers. You'll find more construction vehicles in our pebble-filled pool and in the art room sandbox.

Friday, August 24: 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 our sense of touch tell you what it holds. Shake a container to see if you can tell whats inside just by listening. You can look at x-rays of skeletons and look inside toys to see if we can figure out how they work. There also will be magic tricks that you can figure out once you look below the surface.

Friday, August 31: Rocks for Play and Learning, 10am to Noon
We will have lots of rocks at Wonder Works today, including big rocks to touch, smaller rocks to sort, and tiny rocks to sift from the art room sandbox. You also can collect coal hauled by our O-scale model railway, pieces of geode, and rocks of many different colors. the play dough table will be set up as a quarry, where diggers and dump trucks excavate rocks and wooden trains haul them all away.
