Last week I had my first experience leading a young Lions workshop. The workshop I planned for the Young Lions was called Mad Science. I hold this workshop close to my heart, because as a preschool and elementary school student I participated in an after school program called Mad Science. This program was one of my favorite things to participate in as a kid. It showed me how to take normal house hold items and turn them into crazy inexpensive fun.
I had two young Lions come to the workshop, and they participated and had a great time throughout the entire workshop. This made me feel as though I had passed along the Mad Science fun to the next generation. During the workshop I had the Young Lions mix their own ingredients to make homemade Flubber. I loved seeing their reactions as they watched the substances before them completely transform.
After everything was created we all played with the different substances. It was so amazing to not only see the kids having a great time, but also the staff. It was great to see this, because it is so rare to see a whole group of varying ages having fun and exploring the same thing together.
