February Vacation Adventures

During this brisk February of 2015, the Children’s Museum in
Easton adopted a new beloved friend, Bob the Bighorn Sheep!  Bob was adopted all the way from the NationalWildlife Federation and arrived just in time before the big storm hit this
week.  Here at his new “home sheep home”,
Bob has had a very fun and adventurous first couple of days and is excited to
tell you all about it!

Time to heard the sheep
kicked off February Vacation here at the Museum, which is a week full of nonstop
activities.  This year’s theme revolves
around the Chinese New Year, which consists of 12 zodiac signs and
animals.  2015 is the year of the sheep,
so Bob was in attendance as children completed activities around the Museum and
solved the “Case of the Home Sheep Home”. 
The case involved a scavenger hunt followed by 6 other activities to help a lost sheep get home.  The children completed every activity with
“sheer determination” and each received a prize upon completion!
Snow sisters meet Bob!

night, Bob attended our second ever Frozen themed event!  He was so excited to join the slumber party
and share this very “ewe-nique” experience of meeting the snow sisters with the
rest of the kids.  Children expressed their
creativity through arts and crafts and got to sing and dance along as the
princesses told their story!  The night
concluded with the snow sisters signing autographs, and the children enjoying some
hot cocoa and wintery treats.  To see
more pictures and info on the slumber party,check out these pictures from the Easton Journal.

Bob trying out Mix 104.1 goodies

During this busy week of events, The Mix 104.1 Radio Station stopped by on Wednesday to
take part in February Vacation with their “Wellness on Wheels” tour.  They were very friendly and generous, as they
handed out supplies such as chapstick, car chargers, earphones, and “Essentia”
water containing electrolytes.

Kids petting and greeting Brie

On February 20th, another exciting event took place when the Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog came to visit the Museum.  Environmental police
officer Lt. Hennessey and his intelligent K9 partner Brie, playfully engaged
with the children while sharing interesting facts.  Brie and Lt. Hennessey work mostly on
commercial boats in Boston Harbor, and Brie proudly showed off her life vest
purchased by Vest-A-Dog, to keep her safe.  Brie
trains every single day and recently completed a K9 first aid course.  So far she has been trained to find different
dangerous scents such as gun powder and bomb residue.  When she’s not training, she enjoys playing
and getting lots of exercise!  PS.. Her
and Bob really seemed to clique.

Brie found what she was looking for!

That same
day, two representatives from New York Life Insurance came in and helped
families create ID kits for the children.  These kits are a great contribution to
children’s safety, as they scanned finger prints, loaded individual photos, and
typed up personal information all onto a disk for each child to bring
home.  Daniel and Sharon, the two
financial advisors from the company are based right out of Bridgewater, and are
both active members in the community. 
They both love taking part in events that can make a difference in
people’s lives. To learn more about Daniel and Sharon’s visit check out our next blog post.

Don’t worry.. The kids were able to solve the Case of the Home Sheep Home!  Bob had so much fun this passed week and he can’t wait to see what adventures are in store next.  To see what adventures the Museum has planned visit www.childrensmuseumineaston.org
