They began the month with a Super Hero party, then outside to do some balloon fishing and fun squirting everyone with the water filled balloon fish. Games of Hungry Hungry Hippos took place inside and kept everyone laughing and moving.

Next on the activity list was honoring Johnny Weissmuller’s birthday with a Tarzan jungle party, compete with alligator cup cakes that they made themselves.
