|They have a running garden train. I knew Lincoln would be enthralled.|
|There was a little cable car that went back and forth. It was on a timer,|
but Lincoln was convinced that every time he pushed the rock it made the train go.
|Lincoln also loved the giant sandbox area.|
They had several fun craft stations set up. Emily made a pinecone birdfeeder, a tissue paper pumpkin and a little leaf person. She also made a cute scarecrow bag puppet. Unfortunately, the overly eager volunteer lady pretty much ended up cutting out all the pieces for Emily and even glued most of them on for her. Um...hello! Emily was too shy to say anything, so she just played along and made her own scarecrow puppet when she got home (below right).
|They had some neat live animals. I avoided the snakes and tarantulas. :op|
They had a pioneer village set up with displays and demonstrations.
The kids each got to turn a crank to make their own rope.
|The kids listened to a Little House on the Prairie book.|
