Water Wonders: A 7 Year-Old’s Stellar Review

by Lori Kramer, Office Manager

Recimg_3278-002ently my youngest child and I had the opportunity to attend the Mayyim Hayyim program Water Wonders at the Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary. Through science experiments, stories, and hands-on play, the participants learned all about the transformative power of water. I decided I would enlist the help of a very opinionated seven year-old for some feedback.

“Hey Ellie – I am writing a blog post about Water Wonders. What was your favorite part?”

skittles“The skittle thing in the cloud was amazing! We need to buy skittles!” (The children set up skittles on a plate and placed water in the middle, observing how the water created a physical change, melding the colors together.)

“What else did you learn?”

“It was a very interesting place because I learned that water changes everything. Like by doing experiments and stuff – it was so cool! I loved getting to meet other kids too. I think the next one is going to be about really fun stuff! I hope my new friend will be there!”

“Thanks Ellie, is there anything else you want to share about the program?”

Ema, it makes me want to write a poem:
Love is like a shooting star
Love is like a glowing heart
Love is like peace
Love is like kids playing
Love is like birds chirping

With my seven year-old’s glowing recommendation, how could you not join us for the next program about Transitions and Time? Sign up here for the next Water Wonders at Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary on Sunday, December 11. Can’t make it? Water Wonders will be offered again at the JCC in Arlington in April 2017. We’ll see you there!

This program is made possible through a grant from PJ Library, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
