All 3 will have a stone SOUP. Please bring a VEGETABLE or vegetarian addition to the soup. All three will have a hot tea. We will need parents to help with the soup and possibly a camp stove loan… this will be in addition to the children’s regular lunch.  Please bring your own bowl and spoon- we want to be environmentally sound.
Please plan on a small hike (close toed shoes please) and then crafts and games at the nature center.
WARNING: the 2 older groups will be using pocket knives in the crafts that day. We will have a big talk about correct/safe knife usage.
