An academic development day (or whatever they’re called) brought many Foxboro students to the museum today. Stonehill has those random days off as well, and they’re always welcomed. It was nice to have an older crowd, since I mostly deal with children under five. I recently was given a giant box of goodies (stickers, pencils, posters, etc.) and was happy to hand them out to the children like a madman. Some children learned that wearing a Ray Allen jersey awards them extra prizes.
Spring arriving leads to the possibility of outdoor FETCH!™ labs (such as kite making), but with the off-and-on cold and rain I’m not getting too excited.
Our website has been updated by my talented and wonderful fellow intern Chris Vacchi (See picture below. And no, I didn’t tell Chris I was doing this). It’s much more colorful, and I believe Chris did an exemplary job.
New England Mamas had a recent post mentioning discount museum prices in Massachusetts. Of course, I have to shamelessly plus that with a mere six dollars (free to members and children under one) a child can experience three floors of fun in the Children’s Museum in Easton. Plus I hear a wonderful intern teaches FETCH! labs on the bottom floor of the museum a couple days a week.
Hope you have a great week, and I’ll be posting soon enough.
