Camp Katie Day 2

This week's Camp Katie Day theme was Johnny Appleseed.
The girls had a lot of fun with it, with the exception of my daughter,
who told Peanut's Mom at the end of the day that it was "lame".

I had the table set up for them when they arrived, with print outs
in ziploc bags at each place setting. I wrote their names on them,
and we will re-use them each Monday. This is what they had inside..

I had other stuff ready to go, but did not want them to feel over whelmed, this is supposed to be fun, not stressful. It's Camp Katie Day after all.We had apple slices, and apple juice for snack, and the girls all had lunch together.I use these glasses for the girls each week, and write their initial on a square using a wax pencil that is meant for the freezer. It stands up to their hands, and washes off easily with my dish cloth.The girls did have plenty of free time before and after the table work.

Lincoln logs, board games,dress up, and play food were all enjoyed,

they even ran around outside, which meant ice cream cones were needed to cool off.

I think we have some Happy Campers here!

Did you know that John L. Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright, invented Lincoln Logs?

I love Lincoln Logs, even more than I love Tinker Toys and Playdough, combined.

Are you thinking about Thanksgiving yet, or is it still too early?

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
