Barnyard Buddies Week 3 Day 2

Today was another amazing day at camp! We had some very adventurous and curious campers who were ready to learn and participate.


We started off our day by making a super cool craft using the treasures we found yesterday. We took our leaves and our flowers and glued them onto wax paper. We laid another piece of wax paper on top and had an adult help us iron the pieces together to hold our treasures in place! It created an amazing work of art that looks beautiful hanging in the window.


We also got to make our very own butter! We used heavy cream and shook it up until it made delicious butter. We used our homemade butter on some banana muffins - the muffins even had a little bit of zucchini inside! It was such a yummy treat!


Then, we got to go outside and collect wildflowers to make a bouquet for our moms, dads, grandparents, babysitters, or anyone else we wanted to share with! It was so sweet, and our campers found some amazing flowers outside.


We also, carefully, processed and boxed eggs to sell at the farm stand. We washed them and scrubbed off all the dirt and then dried them off so they would be ready to sell! We were so gentle with our eggs that we did not break a single one. Yay!


It was such a busy morning - we were all ready for lunch! We took our lunchboxes to the gazebo to eat in the shade. It was too wet outside to eat in the pasture. When we were done with lunch, we took a wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch where we saw all the pumpkins starting to grow! Wow! We also saw the honeybee homes outside. It was so cool!


We brought the wagon back to the classroom where we enjoyed a refreshing popsicle treat before being picked up.


It is so hard to believe our last day is tomorrow, but we cannot wait for more adventures with our amazing campers!
