Make a "sensory salad" activity with your child. Hunt for scrap pieces of foam and paper that can be torn into small pieces. Ripping and tearing is perfect to strengthen little fingers. This dinosaur has a mixed salad with raspberries and blueberries! He also has a big strawberry (milk lid) on top! The variety of textures allows hands to experience and work with work unusual mediums.
Campers had fun today in our "Green Thumbs and Recycled Art" camp making these easy magnets. We found a favorite picture in a magazine, pasted to the inside, and decorated. We attached a magnet to the back!
A year ago I opened Learning Charms to a small group of campers and even a smaller group of regular clients. A year later, we have grown substantially because our parents have spread the word and said such nice things about us. Music.4.Life is moving in their wing this weekend with their clients starting on Tuesday! Happy birthday Learning Charms and thank you to our AWESOME kids and parents that have supported us.
