I think all the other stations did very well, not even just in comparison. Next to me was the perpetually mobbed flower-pot making station. The mothers first and then the kids couldn’t get enough of decorating recycled containers into flower pots. The center where some Volunteers work, including the organizer, brought their “small” science trailer with all sorts of demos, and a portable planetarium. There were also stations to make bird masks, volcanoes, geometric paper forms, Picasso-inspired paper plate decorations, learn about cultures from around the world, get your face-painted, and learn about healthy diet choices. It was an exhausting day, but the kids had a blast. The school will never be the same for all the glitter, and I don’t envy the remaining clean-up job in the library, but I’m glad I could go and help out.
