Hey hey people, I know it's after the break but I had neglected to tell you all about the cool stuff we did the week before break!
My Good friend and fellow Assistant Site Coordinator, Nikki Bjorkland and IMS shared with me a great activity she had done over at her site. We went out into the woods and carved ourselves some walking sticks. Some of the kids who take wood shop with MR. Cress taught me a thing or two about the proper usage of sandpaper. We all had a good time covering the front porch in tree bark. Hopefully we can follow up by wood burning some cool designs into those sticks later on.
Thursday we delved into the world of Creepypasta with the SCP foundation. This is a collaborative community creative writing project where users can submit and workshop creepy paranormal objects, creatures and spaces with an enormous archive short stories and reports. I used to love these kinds of stories when I was in MS and it went over well with some of the kids. A few complained about the nonstandard storytelling format though. They asked me to bring more "normal" scary stories next time.
Finally on Friday we watched one of the greatest movies of all time, and a true inter-generational favorite (for real we had multiple parents walk in quoting along with the movie): The Princess Bride!
I hope everyone had a great break. I for one am happy to be back at PL doing cool stuff with the kids!
