For a Children's Social with SAA, I took the boys to the Missouri Conservation Center. It was so neat. They had set up a bunch of different displays and activities just for the kids.
They had a little bat out on a table for them to look at. Tab was quite fascinated by it and we had to keep a close eye on him as he was determined to get it out of it's cage.
Benton thought it was pretty neat too.
They had this big "cave" that they made by taping some big black tarps together and then attaching it to a fan. The kids all got to grab an animal fur or a stuffed animal and go inside. They had a bit too much fun with the flashlights inside as I believe one of them came out in pieces. Opps.
They had set up a station for them to use some stamps of birds and such to make some book marks.
Benton got caught under the table sucking the ink off of the stamps.
Out in the main area of the conservation center, where they just have their usual displays was really fun as well. They had an awesome bee hive. The little tube on the side went to outside. We joked about how much it would stink to have to be the one mowing the grass where the bees exited the building. (sorry about the glare, it was hard to get a decent picture, even without the flash)
Tab thought the binoculars were really cool. He spent quite a bit of time just looking around through them out the window.
And of course there was a little treat afterwords. It was the perfect day for a popsicle.
