This week campers at Great Explorations went on an imaginary adventure across the United States! It was a great opportunity to share travel stories and explore the many different landscapes of America the Beautiful!
An exploration of America wouldn't be complete without America's favorite pastime, so campers designed their own baseball helmets and even went to a Rays game!
During our investigation of landscapes campers of all ages got very creative, using basic materials like blocks and crayons to create their own scenes.
Thankfully campers stayed pretty calm while they did sand art, but once we got to the Wild West, they went cowboy crazy!
Using stencils to design their own cinch sacks really got campers excited about their virtual road trip...
But we didn't stop with basic materials! You can't study the beach without sand or Texas without a bandana, right?
Older campers used geo boards to create unique "photographs."
After our "trip," our campers had so many wonderful memories so we made hand-painted picture frames!
Finally, we got ready for the holiday weekend by coloring our very own U.S.A. beach balls!
Stay tuned for next weeks adventure - Planet Pals!
