Boys & Girls Club has week of fun

The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach has been celebrating National Boys & Girls Club week with daily festivities.

On Tuesday, they attempted to break a Guinness World Record. Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide did jumping jacks at the exact same time for two minutes. They'll find out soon if they broke a record.

The kids had some interesting days planned, such as filling in as staff for a day on Wednesday. Thursday called for paper airplane making and a Mad Science Day at the Park.

Friday is their last day of festivities with a Main Branch favorite, the Mega Bubble. Kids will get the chance to be inside a bubble. The week will end with the TLC Branch's annual sleepover, where children will get to play flashlight tag and finish off a festive week.
