It was nice to complete our nature instruments this week. We started our hunt for the sticks during the first camp week, so to see the completed project was awesome for the campers! This activity worked on fine motor and bilateral skills and then targeted the auditory system. After previewing the garden for next week's camp, we headed out for our parade to the river!
On our way, we sang some songs, listened to the river flowing and talked about safety looking and listening for cars. Our visual and auditory systems were on high alert during our parade and our marching feet targeted our proprioceptive and vestibular systems. Our brain needs to do a lot of work during a task we think of as simple!

We hiked back up the hill a little slower than our way down, that's for sure. We got back to camp just in time for pick up and a little playground and balancing tree play!
