Chosing and Decorating a “Wishing Stone”. (I had a bag of mexican river stones) After painting we let them dry while all the kids took a swimming break. Next we transformed our stones into turtles.

River Stone Turtles
Find round or oval smooth river stones – small, medium large…cut out strong wool felt (100% wool felt is best) head, legs, and tail, then glue them to the bottom of the stone so they stick out in turtleness. Put them out on a log in the woods by a creek…let their story unfold.

Lunch today was quinoa and veggies.
