Camping Week!

Last week, we had camping week! 

If you know me at all, you know this meme is basically me in a nutshell:

Yeah, I don't do outside things. 
So when Ella was telling people "It's camping week! It's camping week!" everyone actually thought we were going camping and was a little confused. No, no no. No camping for this chick. HECK no. 
But I did find lots of camping/nature/outdoorsy activities for Ella! 

Books we read:

Educational things:

I found a whole packet of camping themed worksheets {here}, so Ella did several of those, including:

Things You Eat/Don't Eat sort...

...a maze (she calls them "round and rounds")...


...Which one is different? activity...

...and of course, camping patterns!

There was even more stuff on there (be sure to download both parts of the pack!), but we only had time to do a few of the worksheets! 

And we took a nature walk/color scavenger hunt

Art projects:

We used the leaves/flowers/grass from our nature walk to make a nature sun catcher the next day!

For our snack, we had s'mores trail mix with teddy grahams, mini marshmallows and chocolate chips!

We are wrapping up our summer school activities this week with a back to school unit! Ella has been asking me "what will come after back to school week?" so I may keep doing some fall-themed things with her even after she goes back to preschool...stay tuned, I'm still deciding!


  1. Looks like fun Ella! I hope you like camping at the Ritz!
