Our last day of Nature and Art camp at Children’s Garden Montessori

We read “Where the Wild Things Are” and had a wild last day of camp! During our hike, we found an inchworm swaying in the breeze and watched it climb up it’s invisible silk, and we played “What time is it, Mr. Fox?” We made our own Wild Things nature crowns, and ended the day by creating a 10-gallon mud puddle to jump in! The kids had so much fun rolling around in the mud and being wild. Thanks to all the children and parents who participated this week, enjoy the rest of your summer!

Day 3 of Nature and Art camp at Children’s Garden Montessori

Today we collected objects for our “Sink or Float?” experiment on our hike (and played in the tall grass, of course). We made predictions and recorded our results! Our hikes are a time for child-led exploration, which means sometimes we take a nature nap, and sometimes we investigate prickly plants. In the afternoon, we used pebbles to create designs in clay tiles, and found time for our favorite game, “Mr. Bear, Mr. Bear, are you awake?”

Day 5-the last day of Nature and Art Camp

Summer camp 2016 day5

Day 5-the last day of Nature and Art Camp at Children’s Garden Montessori! We started off the morning by catching bugs and learning about what’s in the earth under our garden. After our hike, we did some printmaking with leaves, finished our clay imprints, and ended camp with our favorite game, “Mr. Bear, Mr. Bear, are you awake?” We had so much fun this week, thank you to all the parents and children who participated!

Day 2 of Nature and Art camp

Day 2 of Nature and Art camp at Children’s Garden Montessori! We learned all about trees, made bark rubbings, and practiced teamwork with our Tree Pose in yoga today. We also collected beautiful natural materials to decorate our photo albums and ran through the sprinklers to stay cool on this super hot day!
