We’ve had so much fun together…reading, crafting and cooking using the suggestions from my book, of course!
But one of the best activities during the last few days was when we went to Eleven Mile Canyon near Lake George, Colorado.
My husband is an avid fly-fisherman…and wanted to give Jeremy his first fishing experience. Armed with a scaled down size spinning rod and reel, Jeremy was put in the competent hands of his grandfather. What an awesome time they had together. Jeremy was excited about everything…except for the worms which wiggled too much!
The outdoors is an amazing place for children. With a little preparation and care (hat and sunscreen, water to stay hydrated, etc.) they can have a wonderful time while learning how to preserve and protect our precious planet.
For those of you who are local to Colorado Springs, please don’t forget about a great FREE event this coming Saturday…Rocky Mountain PBS Kids Fun Fest at Acacia Park in downtown Colorado Springs from 10am to 2pm. There will be entertainment and so many activities for children. Please stop by the Show Me How! table and say hello! If you bring your kids, they can craft a Clifford the Big Red Dog or Curious George paper plate.
