Camping Scavenger Hunt:
A Stroll with Mother Natur

Luluesque_Camping Scavenger Hunt

Every year as summer ends and autumn approaches, I start daydreaming about all the outdoor fun and adventures to be had! Picnics, pumpkin carving parties; autumn leaves of red, orange, and yellow; mischievous woodland creatures; hiking; gardening; and one of my favorite outdoor adventures…CAMPING!

I thought it would be fun to share this little activity with y’all. It’s adventurous, colorful, and a great visual educational tool! The kiddos will learn about the different flora and fauna in their surroundings. I hope it help your kiddos appreciate mother nature more!

Sprout Your Own Scallions

luluesque-sprout scallions

If you compost, you’re probably in the habit of automatically chucking all your kitchen scraps into a temporary bin, then later dumping the contents in your backyard. Well, it is a new year, why not add another “RE-” to your lifestyle, after all, you are already REusing, REcycling, REpurposing, REducing, etc. Now, try RE-sprouting some produce!

These scallions grew on an east-facing windowsill so they get lots of morning-afternoon sun, without all the heat. I will test them on the south-facing windowsill and see how they fare. I am curious just how many rounds of “fresh scallions” I can get out of my sprouts. I’m also curious to see if they’ll be greener with more sunlight for chlorophyll.

If you have young kids, this will be an easy and interactive project for them! It really is that easy and fun, folks! 🙂
