Do you eat Oreos in Wigwams?

My personal paradise!

My personal paradise!

It’s Paradise time again! Today’s Paradise Moment is a reflection on last week’s homeschool lesson. I have been spending probably too much time playing on Pinterest lately but sometimes that pays off with a very cool learning activity. We found this fun looking pin and I thought we would take our Oreos to the nature center and go for a hike on what was likely to be the last warm day of the season. We were due to get quite a cold front but right before that it was a gorgeous day with a temperature in the upper 70’s. So during our hike we stopped for a snack and practiced fault lines and plate boundaries with our Oreo cookies. Of course what do you do when your faults have fallen apart? Eat them of course! (Just a note: use the Double Stuff Oreos – they work better.)

But we also managed some State history and Native American history since the park has an amazing area with reproductions of Native American shelters. Aren’t they wonderful?

We all sat in this cosy dwelling for our science "lesson".

We also saw one of the biggest bat houses I’ve ever seen.

What have you done that is fun or educational lately? I’d love to hear about it!

Peace and health,
