Fall Senses Program at Maine Discovery Museum

We had a great time at the Maine Discovery Museum in Bangor, Maine.

There was a short, informative presentation on our five senses and what can be observed through those senses at this time such as fall colors, the smell of decomposition and the feel of the cooler weather on our skin.

There were tables filled with natural materials the participants could feel, smell, touch and hear. A wonderful memory is of a young baby grinning ear to ear as her hands explored a cut pumpkin! There was a table with a memory game set up with our playing cards, coloring pages and rock tower building. Another table had materials such as sticks, yarn, clay and acorns for participants to create their very own spider webs, spiders and acorn creations!

A great way to spend a Saturday. Thanks to all who came to spend some time with us!
