Cute. The dye was very messy. The 2.5 and 4.5 liked it. As a crafty person. A better execution would have made this a great craft. We were about 7 minutes late and we were not the only late comers. . Missed the Lorax story reading. Should been at middle or end of craft hour.

Came in last hour but still so many offerings to peruse. Decided on $5 bag and got several beautiful books on the Vatican for my 80+ Catholic auntie, a Danielle Steele for her (only fiction she likes), and lots of stuff for me : )

The overall idea was great! The location was just right but the situation for the animals was poorly thought out and dangerous. The "screened" area was much too small for the safety and comfort of the animals. The rabbits were clearly very frightened and there wasn't enough room and water containers for all the animals who were stressed, not to mention the warmth of the day. Too many people were allowed in the area at one time putting the animals at further risk from being stepped on. One child was screaming in fright the whole time while being held by her mother. She should have voluntarily removed her daughter, but when that didn't happen after 5 or 10 minutes she should have been asked to step out of the enclosure. Her screams were no doubt disturbing to the animals and definitely to the people, adults and children trying to enjoy the experience. Please try again but be more cognizant of the needs and safety of these sweet and helpless animals. ??Perhaps another group with farm animals for children to enjoy and touch. The company who chose the enclosure and situation for their animals was the problem as they were in charge and clearly did not care about the safety and security of their animals. Not a good example to set for children who are learning how humans should treat their animals and all of nature's creatures. Thanks for reading this critique.
