An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ Summer Camp ~ More Plant Fun!

This week we read Eric Carle's The Tiny Seed. 
We did two fun plant projects to go along with our plant study.

First we did a simple plant rubbing.

Investigating seed pods!

We also did a Pinterest-inspired plant project.

There is nothing better than having hours and hours of freedom to explore, learn, run, play...

What's that behind the tree?

Oh I seeee you!

Hurrying off to the garden!

A yummy addition to our lunch!

Big Creek Fun!

Visiting the chickens is always a treat!

Every afternoon, we gather in the front yard to play and wait for parents!

And sometimes, the children slow down enough to sit and have a little chat!

 Just a few weeks left of Summer Camp, and the we off on a new adventure!
Can't wait to share what we have planned for fall!
