What’s Happening at PCH? A LOT! (Join in!)

Hey!  Have you popped by and checked out the new events we have posted at PCH?  Remember, you don’t have to be a member OR live in Page County to join in any of our events!  We are ALWAYS open to everyone. ♥  (We do ask that you actually homeschool your kiddos, though… 😉 )

SEEDS: A Day Of Science And Art  (April 5th @ 11:00 am)

SEEDS-ADayOfScienceAndArtJoin us for an event designed by our amazing secretary, Bethany Boyd.  We’ll be dissecting a seed, learning what makes them grow, experimenting and discovering how pollination works through hands on activities, and creating beautiful art from seeds.  We’ll also be making “seed bombs” that you can toss wherever you’d like to see an explosion of beautiful plants grow! ♥

There will be time for lunch, as well, so please bring along a lunch for your family to enjoy.  After the main event, we also have time for the park across the street, weather permitting.  It’s a lovely playground!

We hope you’ll be able to join us!  ♥

Morefield Mine: GEM Mining Trip! (April 12th @ 12:00 PM)

workingmine

IMPORTANT: You MUST register before March 31st to attend!  The venue requires an accurate headcount by then.  Thank you!

The Morefield Gem Mine has agreed to allow our group to visit on April 12th.  They are not open to the public this spring, only to school groups, and they are closed entirely for the summer, so this is a great opportunity!

  • Dig through the raw ore they’ve brought up from their mine!
  • Find amazingly beautiful rocks, gems and minerals
  • They’ll help you identify your finds for free
  • You get to bring home whatever you can fit in a 5 gallon bucket (provided by PCH!)

This is a fun opportunity for your little rockhounds to get dirty and explore, finding beautiful rocks and learning a whole lot about mining.

  • BRING A CHANGE OF CLOTHES FOR EVERYONE.  You’ll probably be quite muddy by the time we’re heading back to the cars and you’ll want to change before climbing back in!
  • BRING A PICNIC LUNCH: There is space to picnic, but you’ll need to provide your own food and drinks.
  • WE WILL PROVIDE A 5 GALLON BUCKET FOR EACH PARTICIPANT ON SITE 

REMEMBER TO REGISTER BY MARCH 31st!  —  REGISTER HERE


Mother’s Day Craft: “Charming” Key Chains  (April 19th @ 11:00 am)

We’ll be using fun shrink plastic sheets to create beautiful charms.  We’ll shrink them, seal them and turn them into a keychain for mom!  Then we’ll box them and wrap them, ready for Mother’s Day gifting.  ♥

(Sample image coming soon… They are CUTE!)

Bring along a lunch to enjoy while we’re together and if the weather is nice, we’ll follow up with some park time across the street. ♥

Pizza, Park and Petting Zoo Day!  (April 26th @ 11:00 am)

PizzaAndPettingZooApril28th2015Last year we had a BLAST with this event and so we are repeating it with the hope that it will be even bigger and better!

From 11:00 to 12:00 we’ll be enjoying the fun of a wonderful travelling petting zoo, right here in Stanley!  Ed Good Memorial Park will be hosting us and the kids will have plenty of time to play on the playground, pet the animals and then, for lunch, eat some delicious pizza.  (Moms get some too!) We’ll also have water, juice, soda, coffee and more.

This will be a beautiful day for moms to reconnect and kids to make new friends as we enjoy the beautiful warm weather. ♥

NOTE:  If you come late, you might miss the animals. They will be with us only from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm!  Pizza will be served at about 12:15 pm.  The remainder of the day will be for free play with the possibility of some organized games.

Join us tomorrow for some really fun (and slightly messy) art time?

I know it’s a little bit last minute, but we have a great art class set up for you for tomorrow!  Can you join us?

We’re going to be using acrylic paints on canvas along with some fun cookie cutter shapes to create beautiful art you’ll be proud to hang of give as a gift!

Don’t worry.  Even though the image shows just two colors, we’re going to show the kids how to have great fun with LOTS of colors and STILL end up with something amazing! ♥
