‘By Jove,’ you know? Say it with an English accent, it’s pretty fun. ‘By Jove, By Jove!’
I wonder where that saying came from?
Oh! Anyway, blogness. The MAC campers had all kinds of fun in Enrichments this morning. They made SLIME, painted and did magic tricks, among other things! You’d probably like to see some pictures… Fortunately, I have some. =]
We’ll start this thing off right: with SLIME.
It’s just water, glue and Borax with a little bit of food coloring, but in terms of Fun to Effort, it’s off the scale.
In my opinion, it’s kind of sad that something that looks so cool and is so fun to play with is not edible. Cool things should be edible. Like lobsters. =]
Yup, it’s great. It sticks, it stretches, it bounces, it jiggles, and it washes out of clothes rather easily. You just can’t beat it. =]
Next, we had painting. Painting clay, to be exact. These campers made the clay figures in previous Enrichments, and today they colorized them. =]
I know it’s a bit of a strange angle, but the figure displayed above is definitely a dog. A pretty good dog, too, though it’s hard to tell in this shot. Just sayin’. =]
Okay, another session. The following are from the Wizard Training Enrichment. Campers learned card tricks…
And had a brief wizard duel!
That was ended pretty quickly, though. There was a magical mixup right after these pictures were taken. The first duelist (top picture) turned into an albino ocelot, and the second (bottom picture) shrank to roughly half his usual size.
Both duelists took the situation very well, and we had them changed back within the hour. Now if we could just get the first camper to stop chasing squirrels…
We hope to try again in a few days, hopefully with better results.
One day, I hope to get one of the aspiring wizards to turn my slime into a lobster. Now THAT would be magical! =]
