It’s been a busy summer here at Imagination Inn. Whether we are dancing in the raindrops, jumping puddles, running through the sprinklers, or splashing in the water, it’s always a sunny day here at the Inn.

We enjoyed celebrating Independence Day and decorating stars and stripes. Our classrooms were red, white, and blue along with our snow cone colored blue mouths!

Mad Science Week brought Steve from Science Works to our classroom. Together we explored all things water-like and the wonderful world of magnification. The children enjoyed his presentation and had the opportunity to enjoy lots of hands-on exploration. We are looking forward to seeing Steve again!

Fairy Tale Week had us huffing and puffing and blowing our houses down. Just like the big bad wolf, blowing over the bricks was impossible! We chased the gingerbread man, decorated crowns, and ended the week as Kings and Queens.

Christmas in July had the children dreaming of the North Pole, making snow globes, and stuffing stockings. We even enjoyed a surprise visit from good ole Saint Nick himself.

We wrapped up this fun summer month tasting, touching, smelling, and listening during our Symphony of Senses week. Lots of new scents to experience, both good and not so good!

It’s hard to believe we are wrapping up our month and welcoming August. After visiting the Wild West, Bugging Out, and Animal Planet week, we will be saying good-bye to summer and welcoming fall.

Summer camp ends on Monday, August 26. Our Bouncy Bears, Marvelous Monkeys, Terrific Tigers, Preschool Pandas, and Afterschool Adventures return on Wednesday, August 28. Our Welcome Back celebration and family visit will be on Wednesday the 28th from 9 to 11 AM. Children can come visit their classroom, met new friends, laugh, learn, and welcome another great new year here at Imagination Inn.
