Little Campers :: Nature/Solstice Project

Happy Summer Solstice! Today for our Little Campers session, we blended some of our well-loved family solstice activities with our weekly LC activity: we took a nature walk to gather summer flowers, we talked about the tradition of the Solstice and how important science and asking questions are...

...we made blackberry lemonade...

...and then with our bevs within reach we broke out the beads and pipe cleaners and made some firey-colored solstice ornaments!


The ornaments we made in this session will double as our Nature/Solstice Badges.

Side note: As you may know from past blog posts (like this one and this one), we choose to incorporate nontraditional holidays- like the solstices- into our family rhythm to preserve the meaning and the sacred in the why behind what we do day to day. As a family, we truly believe that an ethnocentric existence robs one of the richness that is the human experience. Our gracious friends joined in for the fun of it, and we had a great time! 

Next up: First Aid!
