Take a peek at what we were up to this week at Breithaupt Park and Huron Natural Area.
We put on blindfolds and used our sense of touch to get to the know the trees near the meadow:
Our Breithaupt preschool group set up a small tent, then found some mourning cloak butterflies to chase:
Can you find the mourning cloak butterfly hidden in the photo below? Here's a clue: it's not in the middle of the picture. Here's another clue: it's not the whole butterfly.
Our Girls in Nature group did some initiative tasks - first in partners, then as a group. Then we headed out into the woods to collect ingredients for our potions and tea mixes.
Some photos from our Caregiver/Kid hike at Huron Natural Area:
The adventures continued with our Huron preschool group that afternoon:
Our Nature Explorer group worked more on decorating our fort and crafts. We worked on tying knots with our glow in the dark rope. The fort is now equipped with several styles of doorbells, a front and back entrance, and welcoming signs.
