Hello, all! It’s me, Coltrane, back for another report of today’s activities! I have to tell you, I’m having such a blast documenting everything. And who wouldn’t when you get to observe such fun? For example, today campers got to put a leaf behind a piece of paper, and shade it in using a crayon. Check out some of the results!
Their art time wasn’t over there! All groups also got to paint some signs for the garden. I’ll share the finished products with you soon, but for now, here are some great “hard-at-work” snapshots.
Now, if you’re a loyal reader, you likely remember the craft from yesterday: making binoculars! And thank goodness we did, because they really came in handy when we went on a scavenger hunt. Everyone did a great job finding everything!
We also put our construction worker hats on to craft some bee hotels! The orange peppers got to jam out to “Despacito” by Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee while building.
But the campers weren’t allowed to put down their tools and markers just yet! They also needed to make signs for the bee hotels!
After that, it was break-time for lunch! The campers enjoyed a nice meal in the sun before getting back at it for canoeing! Canoeing was a great success (zero tipped canoes) and everyone had a blast.
Another thing that my dear readers know: this week, campers have been mapping the campsite by drawing on paper. Well today, we took it to the next level! Campers were able to use actual materials to create small versions of the farm.
Another story conclusion revolves around the track traps. The time has come to investigate our results!
And how could I forget Garden Kitchen? Today was an especially delicious day because it featured grapefruit avocado salad and swirly scape pesto! (Again, the recipe cards got a bit flip-flopped, so here’s the bean recipe from yesterday! See yesterday’s post for the pesto.)
And finally, we wrapped up the day with a guest speaker: Nathan Westfall from the MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. He spoke with our stewards and SIT’s about careers in agriculture!
Finally, what you’ve all been waiting for: Coltrane’s Captured Moments!
I was able to move my slow turtle body fast enough to get A TON of canoe pics! They are all in our Google Folder. Click here!
Remember to wear your tie-dye tomorrow for our day of Friday fun! See you then!
