This week, we added inflatable swim rings and blue paint, both of which were a big hit! My favorite question this week came from a parent, new to the Wild Rumpus, who saw the pile of inflated pool toys and asked, "What are the kids supposed to do with those?" I assured her that they were free to do whatever they chose to do with them, but she asked again, "yes, but what are they SUPPOSED to do?" and she looked quite skeptical when I assured her that the kids would figure out a way to play with them and that I wouldn't dream of predicting what they'd come up with. And boy, did they come up with some fun ideas!
Even tiny babies had fun in the tubes!

At the June Supper Club meeting, we explored the following outer space apps:
Ready, Jet, Go! by PBSKids (free, iOS (requires version 8.0 or later) & Android)
After Wild Rumpusing all day, the only craft I offered was a recommendation to go home and make a cardboard rocketship to accommodate playing with the Moonbeeps: Gizmo app.
