This week our Summer Reading Program took us into the wilderness!

Who doesn’t like a good old fashion scavenger hunt, especially when it is outside! On Monday, we took a dive into nature and found out the real true story behind arrowheads and a bit of their mystery of how they came to be. Plus, arrowheads just like your fingerprints not one arrowhead is the same.  Of course, we love to make cool crafts during the week. On this day, we made the Arrow Activity and Tic Tac Toe Wilderness Style Activity that becomes a “game” and “bag” all in one!

Wednesday, we had a another very special author and illustrator in the house, named Bruce Arant. He read from both of his books titled, Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep and Simpson’s Sheep Just Want to Sleep. Bruce with his warm touch of imagination allowed us to envision as if we were right on the farm with Mr. Simpson himself. As we wrapped up our hour of fun Bruce provided our friends with a Story Prompt of the week. Drumroll please; “What do Sheep Dream About?”

Friday was all about edible foods in the wilderness, such as the edible Bird Nest Activity. So delicious indeed! Since we enjoy the sounds of birds chirping happily in the trees, we mixed glitter glue with dish soap and ended up with Window Decals for Migrating Birds.
