Children and partners of NVMA staff are often our guinea pigs and “volun-tolds”.
During covid you have helped empty the old warehouse, tested experiments for upcoming programs, previewed blog posts for us, and more. Most recently, our staff members kids have checked out our Kidoons cartoons and new online activities.
Daisy and Eli solving the puzzle of the Moodyville General Store.
In addition to watching Buster Bear fly over to North Vancouver to discover more Moodyville and the Port of Vancouver, our kids had fun with colouring sheets of the cartoon characters, including Buster, Steve Adore, and Ethan Eagle. They have also challenged themselves with an online historic photo puzzle game and a light-hearted quiz.
The puzzles can be made easy or difficult, so teens and adults can also have fun playing. One of my colleagues tried the Sewell P. Moody Puzzle and told me she guessed his face would never be the same. Can you put Mr. Moody back together again? We dare you to try!
Visit the Kidoons page to view the videos, download the colouring sheets, try the quiz and play the puzzle game.
Thank you family!
