What kind of fun outdoor activities do we have planned this week? Lots! Yesterday we made Nature Face Family. I found the Nature Face craft on the Ladybug Magazine website -- so simple, but so fun. Basically all you need to do is use some sidewalk chalk to draw a circle for the head. Then you wander around the yard and collect natural materials to use for filling in the face. I told the kids to avoid disturbing living plants (with the exception of weeds). Here's our nature faces family picture:
This week we're participating in 5 Orange Potatoes Children and Nature Awareness Month The Great Outdoor Challenge. I saw the challenge mentioned on Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns and thought it was a wonderful idea!
