On January 11th at our Makerspace Monday, we found ourselves basking in the sun, as we enjoyed the scent of the ocean and the sweet smell of coconut. The textures, scents, and temperature was a sensory explosion! Did you know that a coconut tree can live to be 80 years old? Also, another fun fact, a coconut tree doesn’t even grow its first coconut until it turns 6 years old, wow, now that is pretty incredible! It was a blast making Coconut Sugar Scrub and Lotion Souffle.
Next, on January 16th for our STEM and Stories Saturday we had a very special time with our friends at AHeinz57, we took a tour with Ms. Deb Elings and learned all about; dogs, puppies, kittens, and cats! They were adorable but boy were they talkative! One dog was as white as snow and even had the name, Winterwonderland. We listened to sounds from all different types of dogs! Plus, we even checked out their yellow AHeinz57 Rescue vehicle that saves dogs and cats! I guess you can call our new AHeinz57 friends, our furry friend’s HEROES!

Coming up next month on February 8th for Makerspace Monday Virtual Event, we will get tangled in string art! This is very special string art, as it has a message on the outside in Braille! On February 20th at our STEM and Stories Saturday, we will meet a real live superhero himself, Jake, who is a fireman and EMT [Emergency Medical Team]. He may even teach us a few tips on how to be safe in a fire!
Please don’t forget about our NEW program called BRAILLE BABIES! We had fun learning about the Braille Cell, letter a, dot 1, as a matter of fact! We sang and talked all about opposites. We didn’t want to leave anyone out, grown-ups also learned about a Parenting Tip.
