Discovery Center hosts annual Chocolate Sundae Sunday

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Ice cream lovers enjoyed the chill Sunday afternoon at the Discovery Center's annual Chocolate Sundae Sunday.

Visitors mixed up their favorite ice cream sundae concoctions with all the fixings like sprinkles, chocolate sauce and candy. Kids also got ready for Valentine’s Day by getting a head start on crafts all while listening to the sounds of the Auburn High School Jazz Band.

"They're playing together, they're making stuff, they're gluing stuff, they're writing stuff down, and they’re coming up with their own ideas. So the kids are just coming out of their imagination making this happen for themselves and it's wonderful to see,” director of education and programs at the Discovery Center, Corinne Sosso.

The Discovery Center says it loves seeing kids get away from technology and use their hands to create fun things while spending quality time with their families.
