Gather 'Round the Campfire!

Camping week was great fun and filled with tons of imaginative play!  I started by creating a campfire using tree blocks and playsilks and added a s'mores tray for some fine dining.

Here is a closer look at the s'mores.  I used chopsticks, cardboard, brown paper and cotton balls and the kids thought it was amazing!  they had a blast making s'mores all week!!

The highlight of our week, however, was the addition of a giant tent, which was so huge, we had to put some of our toys and furniture INSIDE!
My Pre-K kids created woven checkered picnic blankets with red and white paper.

I wish I'd gotten a photo of the finished product, she drew the most adorable little ants on her picnic blanket!

All the students also created binoculars, which I neglected to take a picture of - actually, I didn't get many pictures all week - but you can see the binoculars being used here as we went on our bear hunt!!

My older kids, who had been camping, took it upon themselves to tell scary stories around our campfire and set up beds and other necessities inside the tent.  Camping week, though lacking in photographic evidence, was a blast!  The kids are STILL asking me for the bear hunt song!


  1. It's always good to see that preschools and nursery schools are doing fun activities with the kids. I vaguely remember when I was that young but I don't remember doing anything fun. When the day comes when I have kids, I'll be wanting to have them go somewhere where they do have fun. Kids need to have fun and not stuck behind a desk for half of the day. http://www.brantchildrenscentre.com/infants.html

  2. Yeah! Such a great blog for preschool and nursery schools, to make their students to involve in fun activities. Children need refreshment activities which develops their innovative and creative thinking.
