Mud and other distortions

In honor of the state of our dirt roads this time of year, this month's family program had the theme of "mud." Children and teens explored the various ways as humans that we get "stuck in ruts" and form habits, as well as ways to break free of those habits as best we can. They looked at optical illusions that can be seen in multiple ways and Scribbles (drawing different abstract shapes and exploring various things we can see in them/add to them) and a meditation experiment on seeing things freshly. Also they made "ublec" as a mud substitute and had mud-like soymilk chocolate pudding for snack.
