Sunday Art lessons-Aboriginal dot art

Didgeridoo Craft for Kids

Last year my twins had the pleasure of attending a Galileo camp. There are over 40 Galileo camps in the Bay Area of California for kids in Pre-K through 8th grade.

Kids are encouraged to take chances as they delve into a theme and really become experts on a subject. Last summer my daughters attended an amusement park themed Galileo camp and we were inspired to make…
