As we entered the park today, we spent some time by the pond talking to the birds. We practiced our bird calls, and even saw a duck with her ducklings.
Once we entered the sandy area, we played some of our favorite games including "Fire in the Forest," and a new one called "Bear, Salmon, Mosquito" a group-play on the traditional "Rock, Paper, Scissors." We also investigated the nearby pond and found remnants of the turtle shell we saw a hawk eat from last week!
Jack took notes of the discovery in his journal, and his magnifying glass allowed us to get a closer look!
We enjoyed exploring the pond and the using the surrounding trees to build shelters and climb. We are surely taking advantage of this Spring weather!
