Looking for fun and educational gift ideas for the kids? Look no further! Sign them up for Clearwater Marine Aquarium's Holiday Hooplah! Choose from the following two days or join us for the complete holly jolly holiday experience! #HolidayCamps
Snow Day! (K-5) - Experience a snow day at Clearwater Marine Aquarium! During this frosty day of fun, campers will examine the physical properties of snow and make their own snow crystals to take home! Experience the in's and out's of a microscope by inspecting up-close how snowflakes are each unique. Learn about the natural forces behind the glaciers and make a tasty glacier of your own. Then, put a sunny spin on everyone's favorite freezing friend, the snowman, as campers explore why Florida is not a winter wonderland and why the ocean doesn't freeze! We'll even fit in a hot cocoa and cookies snack and enjoy scattered flurries of fun throughout the day! (Please note: real snow will not be present)
Offered: December 26, 2013, 8:30am-4pm or January 2, 2014, 8:30am-4pm
Reindeer Games (K-5)
Enjoy reindeer games and create toys in our classroom workshop during this unique experience at Clearwater Marine Aquarium! Learn about enrichment as we give toys to our rescued resident dolphins at their underwater windows, and discover why play is such an important part of the animals' day! Visit the animals' toy chest for inspiration, and then create and construct a sea turtle toy from scratch to warm our sick and injured patients' hearts! Campers will also design their own board game, filled with ocean animal trivia and fun facts, to take home and play with their family for many more holidays to come!
Offered: December 27, 2013, 8:30am-4pm or January 3, 2014, 8:30am-4pm
