The kids have been really enjoying the group games we've been playing that help sharpen our senses in the forest environment. Their favorites are Eagle Eye, Howl and Seek, and My Tree. We use sight, sound, and touch in these games to find people and trees.
Back at the meeting space, we've been making lots of potions, exploring the small creek, working with tools, swinging on ropes, and examining our nature finds.
The kids have been really into making pretend ice cream, which made Sam remember that she had a real ice cream maker, so on Thursday we celebrated the end of summer with some homemade vanilla ice cream. It was so delicious!
