Summer Camp

Summer Camp with Smarty Pants Preschool was all of last you can imagine why we didn't have much time to post! We were far too busy having a ball!

Sadly I only remembered to bring my camera on the last day :(
Pathetic for a picture nazi I know

For the final day of camp we had a outdoor appreciation day! We talked about bugs and played in water! The kids had SOOO much fun!

We started the day off with a fun craft! Wednesday we were rained out at the park so we were finishing our homemade pizza!
Then we made butterflies! The kids loved this craft and still have their butterflies hanging up in their toy room downstairs!!!
Here is our crowd happily displaying their homemade bugs!
Then we went on a bug hunt. This sand box was FILLED with bugs of every kind and the kids got to dig and capture them all!
There were darling bug catchers to hold the "GOODS"
My kids LOOOVE the sand
Not gonna lie, I am a sand HATER but I gotta admit they sure do enjoy it a ton
After lunch we let the kids swim and play in the water! There were pools, slides, sprinklers and more!!
Then to celebrate our love of bugs and dessert we made dirt cups!

Every kid thought this was an AMAZING way to enjoy bugs
Coop filled his as high as he possibly could
Judd can't eat pudding so his wasn't so much a "dirt" cup

He didn't seem to mind
Poor kid...there is so much he doesn't get to do with his terrible allergy!
I am so grateful he rolls with the punches and that I can usually supplement for him with a different food!
We read lots of bug books but the Hungry Caterpillar is always the most favorite!!!
All the kids had an amazing time!

Since I don't have pics of the's a recap!

Monday was Dr Seuss day. We ate green eggs and ham which was a highlight. We talked about our bodies and the importance of taking care of our teeth in particular.
- - - - -
Tuesday was our five senses. We touched, tasted, smelled and tried all sorts of new fun things
- - - - -
Wednesday was community helpers day. We took a field trip to the FIRE STATION and met real firefighters. We toured the engine and then were able to see it leave on a 911 call! That was pretty exciting. Then we had a pizza man come and teach the kids how to make pizza, followed by a pizza party! So much fun!

Overall, it was a very full busy and SUPER FUN week! Sorry you missed it but next summer you'll HAVE to sign up!
