We tried a lot of new things this week. One day we walked up the slope to a sunny spot and the kids wanted to make a "campsite" with a fire. We cleared a spot, found rocks to make a circle, and used down branches for the fire. We read stories and snacked around our fire in the woods.
The kids were really enjoying the new manual hand drill and had fun making geo-boards with hammers, nails, and rubber bands.
We built a small shelter in the forest and decorated it with leaves tied together with grass.
We explored the big creek and found lots of different colored sandstone for rock painting. We also played with magic wands in the little creek.
Some kids discovered a pile of bird feathers and tried to figure out what had happened.
We went on a lot of fun adventures up the steep slopes and down in the valleys where we climbed logs and wrestled and played some of our favorite games. Thanks to Wilder's mom Anne for taking some of these photos!
We made rubber band powered boats and sailed them in the basin.
