    I painted a butterfly today and a handprint heart for my daddy for Father’s day! I love to paint.

    What great ideas, Jacob and Kaylee! I’m sure your dads will be so excited to get such thoughtful homemade gifts tomorrow. I can’t wait to see the other creative ideas that our KDL friends come up with this summer!

    We went to the Fredrick Meijer gardens and we have played restaurant and doll house at KDL many times the last few weeks

  6. Sara, KDL Staff Says:

    The Gardens are a great way to stimulate your creativity! So is playing at KDLville. What other activities can you do outdoors to express your creativity?
    How about sidewalk chalk, photography, or hula hooping with a friend?
    What else can you think of?

  7. Sarah Says:

    Me and my brother dressed up and composed a story.

  8. Lynn, KDL Staff Says:

    Sarah – what a great idea to use your creativity! I hope you and your brother had a great time!

    We visited Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. We always enjoy playing in the children’s garden. Our favorite sculptures are The American Horse (especially the small one you can touch)and Mad Mom. We saw Neuron for the first time today.

  13. Sara, KDL Staff Says:

    We love Meijer Gardens too! Especially the children’s garden. Some of our branches have installed children’s gardens too. Check out our Spencer or Caledonia branch for fun ways to play in the outdoors.

    We’re so glad everyone is taking advantage of this great summer weather to experience the Meijer Gardens! What a great place to be creative.

    Logan – it sounds like you made a great picture for your dad.

    Keep up the great work, everyone!
