Take a Hike

Today we explored the woods near our house.  In preparation, Eva decorated a vest made from a paper bag.  But when it came time to wear it, there was no having it.
Oh, well.  We also packed a yummy snack- On-the-Go S'mores.  All the tastiness of s'mores with a lot less mess.  We combined one cup of graham cracker goldfish,
one cup of mini marshmallows,
and one cup of chocolate chips.
Stir them all together and then toss some in a container for your hike.
While exploring the woods I gave Eva a small bag to collect items for her exploration station.
I also wrapped a piece of masking tape around her wrist with the sticky side out so she could stick little bits of nature to it to make a bracelet.
We found lots of acorns,
and even a groundhog burrow.
Tomorrow we will add all of our newfound treasures to the exploration station.  Hiking is so much fun when you get to see the world through the eyes of a little one.
