April 22nd UHSG celebrated Earth Day at Base Lake Park on Ramstein . We had a picnic and made eco-friendly crafts and generally just had a good time. Among other things, there was a trash sorting challenge where the kids sorted trash using the detailed(and sometimes confusing) German recycling system! There is no playground at the park so the kids busied themselves with watching the turtles, feeding the ducks, and cleaning up trash from the park! What a great day!
Over 20 UHSG homeschoolers participated in our annual community science fair. Homeschoolers provided experiments, as well as demonstrations of scientific principles. Hands on science experiments were available for all ages to test and try on their own. Those wishing to compete in the science fair contest provided explanations of their hard work to volunteer judges from the base. All attendees enjoyed an afternoon of sharing awe and fun!
Luckily the first UHSG park day for 2015 was indoors. March and April around Ramstein have both lovely days and rainy days, and hail, and wind.......
The kids always have fun at Spiel and Spas in Kaiserslautern, This indoor playground has lots of fun equipment and the kids always leave exhausted. Thanks to all those who joined us and we're looking forward to visiting lots of playgrounds this summer.
