Here’s our third outdoor activity post for the month of August, which will be all outdoor time activities! I’ve been having a ton of fun with this, and despite it being unseasonably cold this week (especially today… dude, all I want is for my clothes on the line to actually dry!), we have in fact spent at least an hour (usually a lot more) outside each day. If I can keep this up through the fall, I may have to credit it as a miracle. Of course, if I build a habit, it won’t be quite as hard, right? I would like to note that while I am posting primarily parent led activities, our daily outside time mostly consists of free time in the backyard or playground, or an exploring walk around the park, or something else more or less unstructured.
Once we had about ten rocks, we found a picnic table and got out our paints, brushes, glue, and googly eyes. Because all painted rocks need googly eyes, right?
We did this while all of the campers were off on their overnight, so Clara was not terribly distracted and actually sat at the picnic table painting for over an hour. It was a brilliant time. Nancy took a nap in my arms. She also thought it was a brilliant time.
