Campamento Widjiwagan, Week Four - Marshmallow Shooters!

Our last week of the month-long Campamento Widjiwagan experience... I have to admit, I'm feeling a little bit sad that it's almost over. It has been so much fun, reliving old summer camp memories, and creating some new ones, all while reviewing Spanish kindergarten skills.

So far this week, Mag has reviewed the math, literacy, and science skills of:

  • tens & ones awareness
  • telling time to the hour
  • adding coins
  • 3-d shapes
  • initial sounds
  • syllable awareness
  • word endings by number and gender
  • composing short sentences
  • buoyancy 

As always, a highlight at Campamento Widji has been our summer camp extra-curriculars!

Today's fun included... what else, but: marshmallows! We pulled this fun one right from the Campamento Widjiwagan Pinterest board: Marshmallow Shooters! We followed Laura's directions from Come Together Kids, summarized below:

Instructions for Marshmallow Shooters

  1. Gather plastic party cups and balloons, one of each per person.
  2. Cut off the bottoms of the cups.
  3. Tie off the ends of the uninflated balloons, then cut off the top end.
  4. Stretch a Tied-off & cut balloon over the mouth of a cut-off cup.
  5. Then drop a mini-marshmallow into the cup and point the cup upward and away.
  6. Pull the knot of the balloon toward you, then release, and watch the fun unfurl!
Just two more days of our Campamento Widjiwagan fun, then a week off for a 4th of July holiday, and on to our next adventure. Always more fun ahead!

And you? How are you keeping summer review fun?
