Discovery Center at Tuscawilla Park~

I heard about the Discovery Center through the Chamber of Commerce. Although I was not able to attend the Ribbon Cutting event last month, I still wanted to see what it was all about…. Among many things that they offer, I was happy to find out that they had classes on Thursdays for Toddlers.

So today my little grandson (Derek) got to participate in the class. It was so cute…. the class learned about Rainbows…. They made rainbow necklaces from Fruit Loops, made rainbow streamers that blew in the wind, blew bubbles that they could see rainbow colors, had story time, and ended with eating rainbow colored Jello.

Mrs. De was wonderful, and might I add very patient…. working with 2 year olds is not easy, but she certainly was up for the task…. thank you Mrs. De for a wonderful job. I am so glad that Derek got to come today.

  1. Teresa – Thank you for your kind words and sharing your experience at the Discovery Center on your blog! We are thrilled to have Mrs. De on our team. Each Thursday she has a plethora of activities that engage the wee-ones in new discoveries – and often the adult DC staff members take a turn too! You are never to old to Wonder, Explore, and Create!

    • Thanks so much Melissa for your comment. I would love to get the word out there for anyone with children that can benefit from what the Discovery Center has to offer. I’m looking forward to bringing my grandson each week to see what else he can learn. Last week was his first time interacting with other children in a learning facility.
