The kids and I have been enjoying a laid back summer, picking and choosing from the vast array of activities Mother Goose Time sent this month.
We spent this week talking about things you would see at the campsite.
We created our very own backpacks out of paper bags.
You cut off two strips from the top of the bag that can be used for the straps and attached them with tape.
So easy and the kids loved it!
We will likely repeat it in the future!
Sleeping Bag (Make and Play)
We created sleeping bags using lacing cards.
The kids were thrilled when they figured out that their smaller dolls would fit into the sleeping bags they made.
Sleeping Bag Sounds
We also played a game that gave the kids practice with recognizing letter sounds.
They practiced their scissor skills cutting out the game cards and then matched the letters with the pictures of “camping” themed words.
Some examples were “r” for raccoon and “f” for fish.
The kids also had a fabulous time creating “crack fire” sticks.
These were cardboard tubes and lids that they painted their very favorite color.
Then we added sand to the tube and glued the ends shut.
Finally, we added some festoon to the ends.
The kids danced all over the place using the noisemakers.
