Backyard Camp- we'll pitch a tent and snuggle up for some ghost stories, sing-a-longs and flashlight fun
Hike in the Woods- what will we discover when we hike our way through the woods in the park across the street?
Nature Collecting- we'll gather up bits of nature (all things that have already fallen, of course) to use for our exploration area and various crafts
Sensory/Exploration- the sand is gone and in it's place are some rocks and critters to examine, as well as pinecones and anything we find on our hike
Biggest to Smallest- we'll arrange pinecones, rocks and leaves in size order
Nature Bracelet- before heading out on our hike, we'll wrap a piece of masking tape around our wrist and see what bits of nature adhere to them
Bonfire- paper towel tubes and tissue paper will be transformed into a glowing fire for our camp
Hiking Gear- we'll make a vest out of a paper bag and binoculars out of toilet paper tubes for our hike
Nature Rubbings- we'll use some of the objects we collect to make rubbings and maybe we'll paint with them too
Paper Peek-a-Boo Tent- who will be sleeping in this fun little tent?
S'Mores- no camp experience is complete without this yummy treat so we'll try a few variations

With beach week nearing it's end it was time to pack up the sensory/exploration area. In order to continuing enjoying all our cool beach finds, we made a beach in a bottle. It has all the fun of the beach without the sand everywhere! To start, I rinsed out a 2 liter pop bottle and Eva helped scoop the sand from her tub into it via a funnel.
