|Our catch of the day!
At one point we decided to get all the kids interacting with the crabs and decided to have a crab race. We drew a big circle and put the crabs in the middle of the circle and tried to see who could run out first! Some crabs got stage fright and stayed still and others were running for freedom like crazy!
Later in the day, we had a visit from some adults too. These four women came up to me asking about the program and what we were doing. One of them even asked to pull up the crab trap - there is no age limit to new experiences!
Our second day at the Children's Museum was one filled with fun and some technical difficulties. After a miscommunication about who was supposed to hold the rope to the bucket, our water bucket ended up floating in the channel. After trying (and failing) to fish for the rope attached to the end of the bucket we decided the net would be a better strategy. After tying a rope to the fishing net we had on hand we lowered the net into the water to scoop the lost bucket out. Several spectators enjoyed watching us trying to get ourselves out of the debacle we had found ourselves in. Luckily, we retrieved the bucket and continued on with our super fun day!
Happy Crabbing (& bucketing?)
