We also invited friends to join us for one of the extra credit activities…a neighborhood scavenger hunt! It was a beautiful day in the high 70s (don’t ask me why Kaylee chose to wear snow boots!) and we had a great time exploring our neighborhood. The kids weren’t able to find everything on the list, but the did find a piece of sidewalk chalk. One of the kids had the idea of drawing the items they weren’t able to find and marking them off that way. SO…there are random drawings on the sidewalk down the street of a school bus and a lady bug 🙂 They used their imaginations and that’s really what it’s all about!
Here is a complete list of the weekly themes that are happening this week and through July. If you haven’t started, it isn’t too late!
