Last Thursday at our house was Camping Day. Taylor and Mason joined us again for a fun morning 'roughing it' outside. (Again, I totally stole several ideas from Julie for this one!)
We set up our tent and had sleeping bags inside it for the kids to camp out. Unfortunately, my camera is dying, so I don't have pictures that I can show for that.
But Amanda did bring hers to document more fun activities we did! (These were all taken by her!)
Making Texture Bears:
We used flour, sand, and coffee grounds. We painted the glue on, which was a bit messy--but they did turn out pretty cute.
We also went on a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood. These binoculars definitely came in handy--those feathers were tricky to see with the naked eye!
We also enjoyed a picnic--complete with picnic basket and play food. (This was the point I had to haul out my pack and play so that Lily would stop throwing food/utensils/plates/cups/anything she could get her hands on in to the pool. *sigh*
We ended with a yummy lunch of watermelon, hot dogs, beans, chips and CapriSuns--perfect camping food, if you ask me!
*This was SUCH a fun way to spend a morning! I will definitely plan more of these--but I may wait until summer. With preschool 3 mornings a week--we stay plenty busy during the school year!
