So in order for me to have a tiny bit of structure to our summer fun, I had the kids help me come up with some themes for different weeks. We already had some trips and camps planned, so the themes are designed to go with those as well. Nothing fancy or complicated, just fun!
Theme 1: FOREST!
We spent the first few mornings exploring Redwood Regional Park, hiking, building, collecting treasures, seeing bunnies and birds and all kinds of bugs! Learning the different kinds of trees, what poison oak looks like, why berry bushes have thorns, what animals live in the creek, etc etc etc. The big kids could have stayed and explored all morning, but of course Cole doesn't have quite the same stamina and was ready to go home for nap time.
Next theme coming up: THE OCEAN!
