Our Summer of Fun came to a close a couple weeks ago with two of our all time favorite themes, water and garden life. Thanks to all who came and shared their creative movements and laughter! See you on the weekend.
This past week our garden was full of astronauts, asteroids, aliens, a couple moons and rockets as we used our imaginations to travel to the edges of the solar system. Here are some of our favorite moments with our brilliant buddies.
One of the most delicious moments was making Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Moon Cookies, vegan and non-vegan versions. Yum Yum Yum.
Thanks to our friend Kimmy, we learned some amazing clay sculpting techniques and took home some tiny Pikachus and people!
We used a little paper, oil pastels and scissors to create a shadow puppet laser pointer with the help of a very special facilitator.
Partner poses give us a chance to experience our own strength while supporting our friends, relay races help us work together and recycled boxes make the silliest hats.
Some musical scales, asteroid inspection and moon demolition, exploring caves on other planets… all a part of our Summer of Fun here in the garden. Thank you so much for filling our week with imaginative fun, we can’t wait to welcome you again soon.

We were so grateful to host Pam Pimmas, the owner of The Dorm Bakery and the creator of http://wowpam.com/ this past week at our garden! We learned about using plants like pandan, butterfly pea flowers, and pumpkin to add natural coloring to the tapioca and rice flower balls of the Thai dessert, Bua Loy.
Our favorite part was rolling out the dough into little balls, and some giant ones too!
Then we watched very carefully as the balls were boiled and helped to measure out the palm sugar (yum!) and coconut milk.
Ta da: our finished product, tasty Bua Loy.
Lastly, we got to taste our yummy creation, mmmm mmmm mmm good! Thanks Pam for joining us, we hope to see you again soon.
