Along with Fuel Your Fun, the children will have many fun activities available to them, like playing with play dough, weaving, block building, making bubbles, parachute fun, playing with "snow", creating with Wikky Sticks, using beanbags and hula hoops, exploring a variety of sensory materials, and the popular Bug Zoo provided by the OARDC.
