Summer Play Group

This summer the enrichment committee in my ward asked me to put together a play group for the kids and moms in the ward. We have had so much fun. The first theme was Dinosaurs - we dug for bones, read books, watch a volcano explode, and played with dinosaurs. Last week was Aloha. We swam, played in the sprinklers, looked for sea shells, made candy leis, did the limbo and hula danced, and colored pictures of fish. It is so much fun putting these things together. This week we did USA and had all the kids decorate their bikes and then put on a little parade. They also got to get their face painted and play with balloons. I took lots of fun pictures, but I don't have them downloaded yet - next week. Next week we are doing the Land of Make Believe with fairies, giants, dragons, unicorns, etc. I was going to have the kids dress up, and make magic wands, crowns, and masks. Do you have any other ideas - this week is proving to be a little harder than the others. Thanks

I think you live in Heber, but more towards Salt Lake downtown they have the Sweets candy factory. They give free tours and the kids get to see how the candy is made along the way. At the end they get a bag full of taffy. I've taken my nieces/nephews there at least 3 times. We enjoy it. It's free and all ages can go. Here is the website in case you want to look into it.
