Downtown Block Party

Wednesday night was the "Go Green" Downtown Menlo Park Block Party for merchants to set up booths, restaurants to move their tables outside to serve on the street, games, activities and live music all along the street. Academic Trainers and Brilliant Babies sponsored a booth for kids to do "green" paintings with apple stamps and their hand prints and we had tables set up for kids to get REALLY messy (as if finger painting isn't messy enough?) and play with GAK, a mixture of corn starch and water that makes this weird super slime stuff. We had old AT t-shirts for kids to wear over their outfits and we had a great turnout of kids and families!
