It's shaping up to be another banner year of "summer camp" activities at Little Sprouts. So far there has been Creepy Crawly Week, Mud Pies and All things Messy Week and Stars and Stripes Week. The campers have enjoyed making edible mudpies, had balloon tosses, a nature walk with bug collecting and made their own red, white and blue hula hoops. They've enjoyed snacking on ants on a log, jello stars, fruit and veggie bugs and so much more.
The upcoming weeks will have them learning about reptiles, complete with a trip to CML to view some real live reptiles, and then wrap up with a week of Camping with a Rock n Roll twist where they will have an opportunity to camp out overnight.
The Camper Sprouts have enjoyed a very busy past two weeks with Miss Bree leading in Sun, Sand and Water and Our Town themed activitis. Campers enjoyed having a "snowball" sponge fight, making personal sprinklers, building an ocean jar and a sand dollar 3 D art project as well as making some very interesting snacks to go along with these in their first week. Last week while learning about "Our Town" the Campers played a map game featuring some "famous" Brunswick landmarks. They participated in water/spray painting, balloon relay races and especially enjoyed a trip to the library to make dream catchers.
This week finds us celebrating The Red, White and Blue with lots of patriotic events, crafts and yummy, RWB fruit kabobs for snack one day. Following this will be a week of "Summer Olympics" , "Once Upon A Time", and in August a "Camp-out" themed week in which there will be an opportunity for the Campers to tent out, have a bar-b-que and toast marshmallows for S'mores around the campfire.
The Camper Sprouts have also been working on their garden and are very excited that things are popping up every day. Lots of rain with some sun have given the beans, peas, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, pumpkins and flowers a great start.
