It is almost earth day! To celebrate, the kids wanted to reuse and recycle… I was up for that! We decided to make boats out of things that we had in the house. We came up with boats, because we want to take a trip to Marion County (Florida) to check out their MANY outdoor adventures. Boating is just one of the things that we will do, so to prepare, we are making our own!
The one rule was that you couldn’t buy anything – it had to be stuff that you found at home. Beau made his out of sticks & a bottle. He got a stick from outside and got to work. He had to use a bottle to make it float and the tape held it together.
MY LATEST VIDEOS
They have a bunch of crystal clear springs, filled with good old-fashioned swimming holes (like Juniper Springs) So… we think maybe looking for creatures or even snorkeling would be fun. (I’m just going to be honest that I will be the mom on the side… taking pictures. I’m not one for creatures or turtles or fish or anything that would live in the water!) Use Earth Day as a chance to really explore the outdoors, stay in some new places (check out Ocala/Marion County Lodging )and then bring that idea inside & create your own project. Your kids will have a blast! 🙂
