The kids made a bucket list for summer and we have been working on some of it.
-Go to the beach/ Charleston -Bubble activity with foil -Moon clay ( w/ flour and baby oil) -Zoo -Charcoal art -Make pinatas -skate land -ice skating** -Hi-wire
-BBQ w/ Angela and David
Keep in mind, this is their list. I have a few of my own that I will work in. Besides a few academic things I also want to take them to Niagara Falls and the Sears Tower (now called the Willis Tower).
I have no idea what the bubble activity with foil is and camping does not appeal to me. I am a cabin type of camper. I am looking for a tent so that they can camp in the backyard. We are planning on going to some cabins in North Carolina next summer near Bryson City.
We did do the Moon clay activity. Actually we did two different types of moon clay. One with flour and baby oil and the other with sand, corn starch and water.
We had two teams (Larissa's teacher from last year joined us).
Very messy, great outdoor project.
There was a definite winner, the flour. Everyone liked the texture best.
Next we worked on tie dying. Such fun...pictures of that project tomorrow.
