This week the 4- and 5 year-olds at Little Lambs Day Care experienced firsthand some of the pleasures of camping, in somewhat of a make-believe way.

Way back behind the day care building, there is a very nice corner that is heavily wooded. The teachers at the center set up the area so that children could spend their early mornings outside in the shade, imagining what it would be like to camp.

When kids go out into nature, what is one of their favorite things to do?


Dig holes!



Of course it is still warm, even in the shade, but teachers made sure there was cold water for everyone to drink when they needed it.


On Friday the craft project was creating art with the feathers they pretend found in the woods.


Time to go fishing.

You have to have a pond and fish in order to go fishing.  Here is the pretend pond, the pretend fisher and the pretend fish.


Everyone has their own favorite thing to do. In the background, riding in a wagon is the highlight of the day.

And of course you can't go camping without tents!




Time to do a little bird-watching.


Pitching in to help pitch the tent, the teacher here has an excellent helper.
