What Happened in October?
October Project/Activity Themes:  
It’s spooky season here at MAP, as it is in many places! Maddie started us off on the right foot creating magic wands and mouse ears for her Disney themed project week. We then put our own twist on OctoberFest during an early release day with building German-styled mini houses and making Harry Potter inspired Butterbeer . We continued our festivities with Kurt, creating “bone powder”spooky glass jars, carving pumpkins, and playing candy corn bingo. The kids enjoyed creating woodland critters out of bark and pinecones with Desiree, our newest MAP teacher. They were also able to give back a little early this year with Leah’s Random Gift week, making dog treats and weaving bracelets for friends and family. Towards the end of October, the kids were able to tap into the mysterious with Tom by experimenting with “evil science” creating magnetic slime and creating nuclear rockets out of paper. Great fun and amazing projects.

Leah continued her Breakfast club on Tuesdays making delicious pumpkin-spice chocolate chip muffins and fruit kabobs. Katelyn's Nailed It! Club made more tricky food creations like cupcake burgers and a “goblin stew”.
