We had a wonderful first week of camp getting to know our Sprouts! This week the campers practiced being explorers of nature and we talked about how different plants grow from seeds.
Our morning indoor time was full of fun activities like slime, play dough, block building, puzzles, dress-up, drawing & painting and, of course, reading books! An absolute favorite music-time song had the campers pretending to be sleepy lions who would pop up and dance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsNUtmZyPLk) and we used our knowledge about plants to sing and dance along to the song “One Seed” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDtehB-BpIA).
The campers had a blast on the playground, swings, and cooling off in the sprinklers. After lunch we spent time in the green space digging in the mud, climbing trees, making art, and singing songs. Sprouts had the chance to paint a big mural that we later used as pieces to make collages, paint a giant branch & rock we found in the green space, make nature sun-catchers and sparkly fairy wands. We are looking forward to more fun-filled weeks with the Sprouts this summer!
