Camp Week at the Panhandle-Plains Museum

It seems like there is a holiday to celebrate almost everyone and everything.. National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! Hug a Librarian Day! Pet Appreciation Day! The second week of April is apparently the "Week of the Young Child" and families and communities are supposed to make an effort to support early learning and young children. Since we have young children, this is a good week for us!

The Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, located on WT campus, decided to participate by hosting little camps each morning that week. I was excited because we had never visited the PPHM because it's kind of pricey, but during this week, admission was just $3/kid and adults were free! I took Davey twice - we went to "Wiggly Wednesday" with friends and "Fix-It Friday" with Dave.

Each day had three activity stations. Wiggly Wednesday started with a dance party to YouTube videos, which was Davey's favorite part of the whole event, then we went to an animal show to meet some snakes and lizards, and the kids made spider hats. 

Davey and his buddy Jaxon were in matching orange shorts that day :)

These boys are both goofballs

After the program we went to the library real quick to catch the tail end of story time. I was glad we went because the craft that day was kites for all the kids!

Fix-It Friday started off with some block building. Dave walked over and was able to join us for about 45 minutes. Davey had a great time making towers with daddy. 

Charlie loved this little car we found in the hall of automobils

The other activities included making a construction vest from a paper bag and building with marshmallows and spaghetti noodles.
