Making shelters in the wild
We went for a hike on a heavily forested nature trail today. We paused to listen to a short story about Chirpy Cricket.
(The Kindle offers a series of short animal stories by Arthur Scott Bailey.)
We then continued to walk off the beaten path. Soon we noticed many fallen branches and small trees which gave us a brilliant idea…
We could make shelters!
We all helped gather sticks and lean them against each other like a teepee.
Simone, Eddie, and Andre made a large shelter.
We go on nature hikes several times a week and very rarely see animals… something about loud kids must scare them off!
My husband, at work, sent me this beautiful owl picture he took today!
