Pretend play is at the core of our lower elementary Outdoor Education programming. Our goal is to foster the connection between children and nature by encouraging imaginative, hands-on play. The children loved gathering together for a Thanksgiving story and a pot-luck meal in the woods a few weeks ago. They gathered natural "ingredients" from the park and "cooked" their most innovative dishes! The whole class enjoyed dishes such as pine needle salad topped with a dirt dressing, macaroni and acorn casserole, pine cone cake, and mulch chocolate turkey!
