Okay, okay, I know. I promised weekly updates, and it’s been 3 weeks! But in my defense, they have been a very busy 3 weeks 🙂 We have been blueberry picking at Earth Friendly Organic Farms , to the Firefly Festival at Terhune Farms, announced that WE’RE HAVING ANOTHER BABY, and tried (and failed) at a round of potty training for Monkey Nose. So, in the meantime, the whole summer camp project had gotten swept under the rug.
Well, now it’s back out, and we’re going to keep at it. It’s even on my “Summer Project To-Do List”, so it has to get done!
Last week, we stared our traveling with a little “staycation” right here in the USA, which seemed appropriate, it being the 4th of July and all. Here’s the calendar of projects and whatnot from that “trip”:
|Songs||Yankee Doodle||Wave a Little Flag||Colors of Our Flag||Independence Day||Down at the Flagpole|
|Story||America the Beautiful: Pop up book||A is for Abigail||This Land is Your Land||Fourth of July Mice||America the Beautiful|
|Games||Patriotic Parade (make instruments)||Ribbon Wand dancing||Online Eagle puzzle||Field Trip to the Spray Ground Park||Bubble Play Day|
|Art/Science||Make a Flag||Patriotic Teddy Bear||Bald Eagle||Fireworks Painting||Bubble Art|
Many of the links here will bring you to other blogs that inspired my ideas. The links for books will lead you to amazon.com (not affiliate links), but I usually take Monkey Nose to the library for these sorts of things. We read a lot, and while I have quite an extensive picture book collection, it would just get too expensive to pay for every book we read!
And just for the fun of it, here’s a picture of Monkey Nose and a friend at the Spray Park in Monroe, NJ.
