Transportation Works

Today we'll have planes, trains, automobiles, and more at Wonder Works! Let gravity do the work as you race toy cars down ramps. Then let spinning wheels propel toy cars into 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.

Animals in Summer
Friday, Aug 23, 10am to Noon, Saturday, Aug 24, 3;30pm to 4:30pm
August is a great time to see lots and lots of bugs! This week you can meet bugs that have been living in weedy fields, in soil, and under water. You also can see and touch preserved bugs, plus egg cases, nests, and other shelters made by bugs. Expect the Great Outdoors and play dough table to be overrun with pretend bugs.

What's Inside
Friday, Aug 30, 10am to Noon, Saturday, Aug 31,,, 3:30pm to 4:30pm
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 sense of touch tell you what it holds. Shake a container to see if you can tell what's inside just by listening. You can look at X-rays of skeletons and try to put pretend organs back inside a plastic body. There also will be magic tricks that you can figure out once you look below the surface.
