Horsing Around with Nature Noodles

Standard

It’s nature week at my camp right now and who shows up at the lake today other than a girl with a horse. The young girl was great, she let all my camp kids feed and pet her horse Phantom. The children were just so engaged and in love with this horse, it was awesome to watch.

I really love the location of my summer camp. The most random things happen. For example, while I was sitting on the beach today a snake just came slithering up beside me and scared the crapola out of me. This was snake numero two of the day, yuck!!

After the outdoor adventures the kiddos and I went back to camp and made nature noodles (green food coloured spaghetti).

Last year I started the tradition of wacky spaghetti day with the camp kiddos. You eat spaghetti with anything other than a fork, knife or spoon. Of course the children love this idea, it’s so messy!

My daughter is a seasoned pro, we have wacky spaghetti nights at home sometimes. So she goes for the utensils with some grip.

Loving summer days at camp, a little sad it’s almost over!

25 Songs 25 Days: Day 7 – A Song That Reminds you of Last Summer

Video

The song “Nothing But Summer by Dallas Smith” was the anthem for the summer of 2013. Last summer I ran a summer camp for children aged 4-12, it was a blast. The children had so much energy and got me pumped up for a great summer. I had one little girl in particular that LOVED to sing country tunes. She often told me that Brad Paisley was coming over to watch her perform later, so cute!

At the end of each day I had this little girl for a longer period of time then the rest of the children. We would pump the country tunes and have dance parties until her mom showed up to take her home. I don’t think I will EVER be able to forget her belting Dallas Smith out at the top of her lungs. Nothing But Summer is an awesome summer song for sure!

Another song that was played often was “Macho Man by The Village People.” I had two brothers that loved singing Macho Man, it was hilarious watching them sing and dance.

“Body, body….wanna feel my body baby”
