Prep Scouts Day 2 found us busily at work with our friendship bracelets. Most of the scouts had hardly finished their first before they were planning for their next bracelet, so that’s been fun. Day 2’s second craft was the creation of seed starters made using shredded paper and flower seeds. Each scout had the chance to make one.
Our clever school assistant, Mrs. O, was the person who gave me the idea, and this one was a winner. Next week, we'll wrap up our creations so the students can bring them home and give a hand-made gift to their mom for Mother's Day.
Our cooking project was the creation of homemade salsa and guacamole, two activities the scouts enjoyed very much because both involved eating, a very popular activity for middle schoolers.
Today we head to a wildflower preserve just over the border in Pennsylvania. It’s a beautiful place and with any luck the rain will hold off until we board the bus for the ride home.
