Town II. If our boxes have survived (fingers crossed, two snows later!), we’ll resurrect Boxtown. We’ll need more duct tape, glue and sharpies – and of course a new mayor! We can check on this project first, and then move the other stuff around depending on how well the boxes have held up and whether everyone’s as into it as they were last week… moving parts.
As part of our science experiment agenda, let’s mummify some stuff, and maybe make some “fresh” raisins. It’s fun to have an ongoing experiment. I will bring some grapes and a couple containers of baking soda, but we’ll need more baking soda if everyone wants to play. You need A LOT. Bring a small food container with a lid that has room to hold your kid’s mummy of choice. The kids can make official-looking progress reports for note-taking, if they wish. (Google “mummified foods” for more options.) I’ll bring a large plastic container to keep our fun stuff from taking over the space, especially if there are odors involved….
AND it’s National Potato Chip Day! If anyone is interested, we can taste-test chip varieties for lunch. No pressure if this isn’t your thing. It’s totally Rosetta’s, so I am required to do it.

Supplies for building with cardboard – scissors/knife, pens, duct tape!
A food thing to mummify, baking soda + a small container with a lid
Chips to taste test (optional)
Lunch + snacks for your people
