FIND
-color scavenger hunt at Goodwill (which honestly was the "Help Mom find possible accessories for the new living room" hunt) - slow start but then they gained steam. We found lots of things in the colors, but nothing we wanted. The booklets were the biggest hit of the hunt...I may have another hunt idea that could use them!


GO
-tball picnic

-Brewers game for Little League night
-library visit (WPL & MPL)
-Tuesdays at Ten storytime with Miss Molly
-Betty Brinn for Rosie the Dog Gets a Check-up!




MAKE
-airplane racers (idea found here but we used straws in place of the paper clips)

EXPLORE
-USA postcard swap
-butterfly hatching project (butterflies & release stages)



HELP
-trash clean-up day on our morning commutes/walks (our street had NO litter... YAY!!!) - the kids loved this project (including a friend who walked home with us from Spanish class), I highly recommend it!

You guys have been so busy! I'm blown away by the number of books read and think it's awesome you did a litter pick up. I don't think I would have thought to do that!
