Today is the day I become a beautiful butterfly!! At first when a butterfly comes out their wings are soft but as soon as blood pumps into their wings they are ready to fly.
We went on a hike to identify butterflies. They each had a pair of binoculars and a book of butterflies and caterpillars so when they found one they could see facts and what each one looked like. There are about 28,000 different types of butterflies!
We made rainbow smoothies today. We used strawberries, orange juice, bananas, kale, and blueberries. A nutritionist came in and talked about eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies. They played with plush fruits and veggies and tossed them around. The “germ” tried to touch the fruit and when it did the person who threw it had to do five jumping jacks.
We enjoyed a fresh snack of watermelon in the afternoon. It was so refreshing before our relay race games!
We went on monarch hike looking for butterflies. We found a butterfly by some milkweed! Monarch butterflies are the only insect that will travel up to 2,500 miles to get out of the cold weather.
We played all sorts of games at our relay races! We had egg on a spoon, pass the rag, don’t spill the cup, an obstacle course, butterfly life cycle game, and dizzy bat.
We had so much at camp this week. We hope to see you all again!
