We have done so much this week! Here is the general schedule:

9:00-10:00 am is arrival and “human practice,” where we take turns answering questions politely and respectfully. Usually a speaking tool stuffed animal helps us out. Questions include “What flavor of ice cream would you invent?” or “If you could create a hybrid animal (parts of animals merged together to a new one), what would it be?” The kids are very creative with these.

10:00 snack

10:30-11:30 is indoor rock climbing

11:30-12:30 is indoor fun. We have been painting, creating puzzles, playing board games, and constructing blocks and legos.

12:00-1:00 lunch

1:00-2:00 is outdoor fun. We have been hiking out to a point on the lake to build forts and gnome homes.

2:00-3:00 is choice time. The kids can play inside or outside and pick their activity within a certain area. The most popular is “catch the counselor.”

3:00-4:00 the parents begin to arrive. I have been reading  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory while the kids calm down and play with a stuffed animal from our collection.
