My child learned all about space, the different planets and the moon! He got to make moon sand which he found fun of course getting to be hands on and dirty. Learning about craters in the sand and how they are formed. He even got to draw some space creatures. It was overall a fun experience for him and something we have never had before, we didn’t know what to expect but I was impressed!

My girls loved the experience. The girls learned about recipes and practiced making some of them and customizing them to what they liked. They played some fun games and wrote down the recipes to make their own cook book. My kids said this was one of their favorite grasshoppers yet. The teacher cleaned up and was very thoughtful and organized.
