Graduate students at the Child Development Lab at the University of Virginia held a family fun day to give back to the families that participate in their children research center.
There was face painting, finger painting and a ballerina to teach kids a few moves, but it's all to remind people of the work students do at the children's lab.
“We completely rely on members of the community to participate,” says graduate student Shaina Rowell. “We research things like how children learn things from other people and pretend play and a lot of really important things.”
“We really rely on the community here and they have been good to us in terms of volunteering in the past and we want to make sure that continues.”
The Albemarle County Sheriff's Office also helped provide free fingerprinting for the children and their families.
