 Each of the preschooler chose their favorite animal to add to their board.
 This project turned out really cute!

The kids can't wait to add photos to their boards. It will make a neat addition to their rooms.

Summer of Exploration~Wichita Children's Theatre & Dance Center Wichita, Kansas~The 3 Little Pigs

Visiting the Wichita Children's Theatre

The Three Little Pigs
 Anxiously awaiting the performance
 The preschoolers LOVED the Big Bad Wold (He was a vegetarian!)
Visit the Wichita Children's Theatre Website @

We found a AWESOME park that was a block away from the theatre. The kids has so much fun playing. The day couldn't have been more perfect and the weather was fabulous!

The kids were pooped after watching the play and playing outdoors. Needless to say, they all took a great nap! The kids can't wait to visit the theatre again next "Summer of Exploration".

*****Thanks to our photographer Tyler who did an amazing job of snapping some fun pics of the kiddos*****
