sweetFrog Hosts Pink Moon Viewing Party

A Full Pink Moon will rise on April 11th and a local frozen yogurt shop is inviting young students to bring their families out for an educational viewing party complete with sweet pink treats.  Local teachers will show kids how to channel their inner Galileo, tracking the full moon as it rises, and help them create their very own frozen yogurt galaxy complete with strawberry yogurt and tasty toppings.

Next Tuesday (April 11th), sweetFrog Frozen Yogurt shops here in our area and around the country will partner with local teachers to host Full Pink Moon viewing parties from 8-10PM.  All elementary-aged children (14 or younger) who walk in the door will receive a small free sample of pink yogurt.  Additionally, all guests are encouraged to “create their own galaxy” at the toppings bar by filling their favorite cup of frozen yogurt with stars (sprinkles) and planets (orange and mango poppers).

While all guests are encouraged to bring their own, local teachers will bring telescopes, binoculars and other viewing devices to help each kid get a closer look at the full moon and learn how to track favorite constellations, such as the Big Dipper, Orion’s Belt, and Cassiopeia.  The teachers will also give a quick educational lesson on the Full Pink Moon using space-themed coloring sheets and a full moon workbook provided by sweetFrog.

“These Full Pink Moon viewing parties are an extension of the Leap Forward educational programs we offer nationwide,” says sweetFrog’s Chief Marketing Officer Matt Smith.  “We partner with local schools – offering up gift cards and hosting field trips to make learning fun and rewarding.  We believe these Full Pink Moon viewing parties will show kids the value and excitement of getting outdoors and learning more about their world.”
