In March of 2014, Persephone was a Kindergartner at Garden City Elementary in Brooklyn Center. The school liked to put on family fun nights each month to encourage parents to come and engage in some fun activities with their kids.

So we decided to check out Science night, which was really awesome.

You got a scavenger hunt-esqueย map that told you where the activities were being held so you could make sure you didn’t miss any. After you completed the activity, you would get a stamp, and at the end go to the cafeteria to pick up a treat and turn in your completed sheet to enter a raffle.

Persephone was really pleased with what she was able to make and bring home that night, so of course, I took tons of pictures, which I will now share with you.

Her favorite project was a kaleidoscope. She even wrote her name on it.

The picture that’s used as the “featured image” of this post is the inside of Persephone’s kaleidoscope, which was made using 3 thin mirrors taped together and then adding thin pieces of colored electrical tape over the top. It’s pretty awesome actually.

Sephie also made a wind glider with some of the folks from The Works.

You know paper airplanes? They’re garbage! Make a plane like you see in the picture here and they’ll go crazy far and do lots of fun tricks. Trust me.

As for the fate of her Icosahedron, I found it hidden in her doll house the next day, partially eaten and covered in ants.

We all know where I’m going with this.
