Lynn Meadows hosts Countdown to Noon

Shakers, dancing, and lots of laughs: Lynn Meadows hosted their annual Countdown to Noon New Year’s celebration.

Shaking their way into the new year, kids had a chance to welcome 2021 without staying up until midnight.

Saylor and her mom Jensine Langley from Hurley joined Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport for the Countdown to Noon New Year’s Celebration. “I think it’s awesome. That they were still able to do this and do it outside in a safe place for them.”

Kiddos full of cheer danced, sang, and got creative! Saylor said, “My favorite part is that we did lots of crafts, the glasses, the shaker. It was all so fun.”

Arts and crafts were a crowd favorite at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center. However, what makes these arts and crafts so special is that they’re made from recyclable materials. Doing their part to reduce waste, Lynn Meadows used recycled bottles for their new year’s shakers. Floor Staff Worker Josh Piorrier said, “We’ll put things out on Facebook. If you have any spare bottles to donate, then we bring them in we sanitize, tape them up, fill them up, fill them up with little sparkly things for them to shake up and have a good time with.”

“I’m just so happy to see her enjoying herself, being able to get out and get around people and dance and laugh and have a good time.”
