We are pleased to share with you The Children's Museum of Easton's Mind Body Soul Summer activities! We hope these activities help you all to nourish your minds and bodies and continue bringing joy to your family and community.

Activity for the Mind: Fizzy Rocks! Looking for some fizzy, erupting fun? Our Fizzy Rocks experiment will be sure to get the kids excited as they learn about chemical reactions!

MATERIALS: Vinegar, baking soda, food coloring, water, bowls, tin foil or parchment paper, spoons, measuring spoons, cookie sheet or flat pan, dropper (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1.  Add three tablespoons of baking soda to a bowl.
  2. Add five drops of color to the baking soda.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of water to the baking soda. The mixture needs to be moldable like a snowball. If it is two dry, add a few drops of water. If it’s too wet, add a bit more of baking soda.  
  4. Mold the mixture into a ball-shaped rock.  
  5. Line your tray or flat pan with tin foil or parchment paper. Place the rocks on top of the paper and put the pan in the freezer for four to six hours.  
  6. Experiment Time! There are two ways you can do this experiment. The first is dropping a frozen rock into a bowl of vinegar to see the results. The second takes a bit longer (the anticipation definitely builds doing it this way). Keep the rock on your pan and slowly add drops of vinegar to the rock. Both will have the same end results.  
                                                                                                                                                                 
WHAT’S HAPPENING: The Fizzy Rock experiment is all about a chemical reaction. We use vinegar, which is an acid and baking soda, which is an alkali. When you combine the two, the reaction releases a gas, carbon dioxide, which creates the bubbles you see!   
 
TAKE IT A LITTLE FURTHER: As you’re molding your rock, add a hidden treasure inside as a surprise! Dilute your vinegar with water. Does it change the experiment or it’s results?  Add water to the vinegar. Does it change the results? 
Activity for the Body: CME's Replace the Race!
Have you joined the #ReplacetheRace? This week, we are going to #CMEREPLACETHERACE since we couldn't have our annual Father's Day Road Race. You can complete several activities all week long or choose one day to replace the race with an activity that gets you up and moving! Have you missed any of our activities for the body in our   Mind Body Soul Summer ? Take the replace the race challenge and complete one of those activities! If you've already been moving with us all summer, try something new! Take a hike in a new location, walk a different route in your town or join a virtual yoga class! Register  here  with a gift to the Museum and share in our  Facebook event  what activity you are going to do to #ReplacetheRace!


Activity for the Soul: Kindness Rocks “One Message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, life
~ The Kindness Rocks Project, Mission Statement
Children and families across the country have come together to help promote the mission of The Kindness Rocks Project, to share positive and encouraging messages to people in their communities. Activities and projects like this are a great opportunity for Social & Emotional learning (SEL). SEL is critical in a child’s development, as it promotes empathy, positive relationships, social responsibility, and community engagement in the classrooms, at home and in our community.  

MATERIALS: Rocks, paint, paintbrush

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Find a handful of smooth/flat rocks. Sizes can vary but one the size of your palm is a great choice!
  2. Clean the rocks with a mild soap and let dry.  
  3. Think of a positive message. Here are a couple examples: “You can do this!” or “Be the light for someone” 
  4. Paint your positive message on your rock. Let it dry.  
  5. Place your rock outside where someone can find it. People have placed them in parks, along hiking trails, outside their library entrance, at the end of their driveway. etc.     
                                                                                                                                                           
WHAT’S HAPPENING: Participating in a positive movement is a great way to feel a sense of community. People across the country are finding messages that help inspire, support and encourage one another. Sometimes, people take a kindness rock with them. This may be something that is helpful to explain if your child is attached to the rock. People may take a rock and leave a different one. Imagine what message might be left for you?
 
TAKE IT A LITTLE FURTHER: Try and think of additional locations to leave your rock. How about outside of a school, church, or nursing home? Think of a place where it will be seen.

While you’re here, take a walk on one of our many farm trails and experience all that Weir River Farm has to offer! Tours are offered for families/quarantine groups every half hour. Groups must pre-register for this event in order to participate. Parking located at 140 Turkey Hill Lane, then walk down the farm “chute” to the barnyard.

Middleborough - Soule Homestead This Summer we have an awesome opportunity for you to visit Soule. Want to snuggle a rabbit? Feed a sheep it’s breakfast? Collect eggs and show your kids your chicken catching skills? You can do all that and more at Soule! In order to keep our visitors as safe as possible, we are not offering our First Farm Fun story hours or our Soule Summer Camp program. In the place of these programs we are instead offering small group visits so that you can still do many of your favorite activities on the farm. Each program has a limit that you can work within to have your extended family or friends join you. We require at least one adult per each group visit. On the farm we have a bathroom which is cleaned daily, we have an outdoor hand washing station and our staff will wear a mask the entire time they work with your group. We ask that everyone in your party (over the age of 3) brings a mask to wear for moments that they will be in close contact with our staff.

Please note you do not need to have the answer sheets in order to play, a blank piece of notebook or printer paper is fine. For our virtual trivia nights, there will be no official scoring. Patrick will go over the answers after each round so you can score your own answer sheets. Instead of prizes for the winning teams, we will randomly select three registrants to win a $20 gift card to An Unlikely Story. The three winners will be notified via email during the live game. See you on Facebook!
