This was one of our favorite activities last summer and since the kids and I are preparing to kick off Fleck Family Backyard Summer Nature Camp 2014, I thought I’d rerun this post and share this great Summer resource with all of you in case you’d like to have a backyard camp with your kids this year, too.
Yesterday the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and it was the perfect day to kick off the Fleck Family Backyard Summer Nature Camp!
We’re using the ecurriculum I’m a contributor to and an affiliate for, the At-Home Summer Nature Camp ecurriculum from A Natural Nester .
There are 8 weeks of activities:
- kid-friendly lessons
- outdoor activities
- indoor projects
- arts & crafts
- field trip ideas
- book & media suggestions
- and more!
The nature camp ebook comes in a full-color PDF you can read on your computer screen or tablet, or print out. I have emailed the pdf to my Kindle account, so we’ve got a paper print out in a binder and I’ve got a copy on my Kindle. We’re all set and ready to go!
Yesterday, to kick off the week on a sweet note, we chose the Pizza Box Solar Oven S’mores activity. Here’s the Fleck family take on this fun and tasty outdoor science activity:
