Heidi's Happenings: Hunting for Treasure
Heidi Hill is a guest blogger for the CPD’s Developmental Skills Laboratory (DSL), a day program for adults with disabilities. Heidi loves to type and each month she’ll be sharing the fun activities that she and her “buds” are doing at DSL. Flying kites on the Quad. We went to one museum and saw animal and human remains, which were showcased, so people who happened to be right there could see exactly what was on display. Heid and her buds had never seen so many artifacts in their lifetime. We made shamrocks and when we all went on this huge treasure hunt, we found tons of genuine coins which we divided equally, share and share alike. One day when it was just barely warm enough we went to the Quad and went kite-flying. It sure was fun to feel the sun! We went by van to one movie theater. When we’d just sat down we munched on yummy buttery popcorn, which was soft enough for Heid to munch on, while everyone just listened to and watched this neat flick called “The Croods,” which is really a must-see. Heid and her DSL buds sure are happy they get to visit the movie theater again. A treasure hunt at the DSL. We had an Easter egg hunt and a party with pizza and yummy crunchy breadsticks which Heid and all her buds couldn’t get enough of! Then we went on our second—yes, second—treasure hunt of the month for our Easter treasure which was hidden in Drake’s office. We had some visitors come from that frigid state of Minnesota and they helped us with our egg hunt. We sure did enjoy having them here!
