Thursday 25th February 2021 - Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Yes it is!

Paper Planes, lego planes, stick planes...

Today we will make several types of planes and then go to the park to test them. Which one flies the furthest? Which one the highest? If there is still enough snow we will also go sledding and see how fast we fly down the hills! 

Back at Academicus we will read some books about some adventures in hot air ballons and make our very own ones to take home, and have more time for fun and crafts.

We will have popcorn like in a real cinema too! If time permits we will make fake snow, snow globes and have an indoor snowball fight as well. What a great way to finish this fun week!

We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
