Down on the Alpaca Farm
This is the time of year where I try to pack in as many field trips as I can before winter. Last year we visited the same small alpaca farm, and we thought it would be fun to visit again.
Once we figured out where to go, I strapped Lil Pumpkin on my back in my Ergo carrier and was ready to go. Little did I realize how much hiking I would be doing….
Our group got to spend some time hiking through the woods on the farm. We found a tree frog, looked for fossils, found puffballs, and got to pet several different animals.
While hiking the kids happened to find some bones. They had fun trying to guess what animal the bones were from. They spent quite a bit of time examining and talking about the bones. How timely since we are studying anatomy right now.
We had a great time hiking and seeing animals that we don’t get to interact with on an everyday basis. By the time the fieldtrip was over, my little girls were brave enough to actually pet the farm dog and the bunny. That was a big step for them, especially the 4yr. old.
Have you been on any fun field trips lately?
