Spring Fling and Wax Museum

It has been almost a month since this took place, but I wanted to document Jasper's school 'Spring Fling'. Jasper is part of a program called 'Explorer's Club' and basically it is just the top students in each class get to participate in bi-weekly activities after school. They also got to do a 'Hero project' this year and display it at the Spring Fling as a Wax Museum. Jasper chose to do Amelia Earhart. For a first grader, this was a little challenging, so I ended up doing most of the work! :P

Everyone that stopped by her display board and heard her do her intro remarked that she looked just like Amelia Earhart. This was the picture they pointed out as they said it. What do you think? The smile? The eyes, the nose? Either way, she was pretty darn cute.

Here is her performance for the camera.
 "Hi, I'm Amelia Earhart. I was the first lady to fly across the Atlantic"

Then we went to visit her classroom which was all decked out in bugs to display what they had been working on recently.

Having a picnic by the ant hill! Making bugs out of goodies.

They had a tent set up where they could read a bug book to their families... Jasper read one to her cousins and brother.
The school has a greenhouse and an enclosed courtyard that they call their "Secret Garden". We found a tulip that had sprung up outside of it's allotted bed and was sheltering under a tree. It epitomized Spring to me, so I had to include it!

I have to say that she was so darn cute in person :) I liked the bug room as well; actually I liked the candy that we ate in the bug room haha.
