Today was our last day of Barnyard Buddies! We were sad that our time with these campers had come to an end, but we still had lots of fun stuff to do before saying our final goodbyes.
As campers arrived, we started a critter bookmark craft! We used washable paint to create fingerprint critters all over our bookmark! Then, we finished them off once they were dry with crayons to create some adorable bees, butterflies, and ladybugs! It was so cute to see how creative our campers are!
Then, we headed out to the big garden where we got to see a lot of cool plants - we even got to pick some of the veggies! We harvested an entire bucket full of kale! We also got to see tomatoes, corn, peppers, squash, and raspberries. It was so cool! We also got our hands dirty in a bucket of worms!
Once we were all tired out from working in the garden, we came inside to grab our water bottles. We found a shady spot outside to enjoy a delicious nature trail mix - inside were marshmallows, m&ms, cereal, pretzels, and sunflower seeds. It was so yummy and helped us fuel up for our next, super exciting activity!
On the farm, we have a teeny tiny baby goat; he is only a few weeks old! Our Barnyard Buddies got such a special job today - they got to take our goat, Indie, on a walk around the farm to give him some exercise. Each camper got to help lead the goat around. It was so cute, and our campers absolutely LOVED it!
Next, we took our wagon ride to a shady spot to have our picnic by the pumpkin patch. We worked up some huge appetites! It was nice and refreshing to sit in the shade and eat!
By the time we got back from our wagon ride, we only had a few minutes left to play before it was time to say our goodbyes.
