Blue and Green Explorers

This week is Dream week so the students are exploring what they want to be when they grow up.  Today the blue and green explorers created a restaurant together.  We named it Dream Star and decorated our kitchen into an upscale restaurant.  Next, we split into two groups.  One group baked bread, while the others baked cupcakes.  Then we set the table and had waiters bring us our lunch.  It was so much fun using our imaginations!  In the afternoon, we headed out for water play.  After water play, we got to taste our delicious baked goods.  The cake and the bread was so delicious.  I think we have some future chefs in the making.  All in all, it was a wonderful day at summer camp!

 

Yellow Explorers

Today for dream week we painted with water colors depicting what or where the kids wanted to go or be. We had some fun renditions of Lego Land, as well as some abstract works of art! For science today we studied the effects of mixing vinegar and baking soda to create carbonic acid, which in turn, created gases that inflated a balloon that we attached to a bottle. The kids thought that was pretty cool! We had a picnic for lunch, a riveting game of Hot Potato, and followed it all up with fun in the sun with water play! We had ourselves a marvelous Tuesday, and we can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
