While it is still warm and beautiful out I'm trying to take our Fridays and turn them into adventures. Field trip Friday as one of my munchkins named it.
We have some pretty awesome prairie field guides that were begging to be used. We just so happen to have a prairie reserve a few miles down the road from us. We took our paints, field guides, and a quilt and headed out the door. My kids loved it. They were picking flowers, looking for snakes, and identifying caterpillars. My husband took them back Saturday morning because our youngest wasn't so cooperative at being in the tall grass and they felt they didn't get enough time there!
After the prairie we headed to a new to us nature center afterwards to paint our flowers. We hiked the trails, checked out the reptiles inside, and played in the tee-pees that were made.
I love the learning that goes on when we're not sitting at a table. It's my favorite kind. I think we're going to look forward to more Fridays!
