Wednesday at the Big Tesuque!
Katie started the day by reading her book about Sandhill Cranes and showed the kids the process to create a picture book.
LITTLES: Buddies created stories together and then hiked to a spot to work on their books or build shelters. Some of the kids made a shelter for a queen fairy and her pet dragons, while others worked on more serious tee pee structures with the counselors. We used watercolors to paint a story on some fallen bark and talked about the stories we saw the day before carved into the rocks and caves. We told bear stories and did a group game of sharing stories about places they had been and what they had seen.
BIGS: Played in the river, and used a map to discover a less traveled trail. We spent time quietly writing our animal stories and enjoying the peace of the forest. A beautiful and relaxing day in the mountains!
