Off to A.C. Moore

On Wednesday we had a fun trip to one of our local craft supply stores, A.C. Moore. The children were able to take a tour of the facility and see the many different types of mediums available for creating all types of projects.

It was also great, as they knew we were concentrating on community helpers, that when we reached the Melissa and Doug section, our tour guide was sure to show the children all the wonderful puppets and dress up clothes they had for many different kinds of helpers.

After traveling through the store we got to go to the "classroom" and create a "Dream It" picture. The children were encourage to think about what they wanted to be when they grew up, and draw a picture of that. When we were finished we were even treated to a goodie bag.

This was my first trip to this store--in this capacity. I thought it was very nice of them, but I would have liked to been able to let the children get a little closer to many of the things she was talking about. We had to look down the aisle she was speaking about each time. I think some of it got lost.

It was still very kind of them to allow us to come to the store and create something. We thank them immensely.
