Campfires are mesmerizing at every age.
Though it was hard for the little guy to wait patiently until sunset to light our fire, I think the anticipation made him enjoy it more after the sun went down.
We were really excited to sneak out for a quick camping trip this past weekend. It was even more exciting to watch the little man make sense of what he saw in the world around him and relate it back to what he already knew.
“Mama are these blueberries?” “Nope, those are Juniper Berries — they are for picking up and counting, but not eating.”
“Mama, look! The wood broke open and there are carrots inside!” “Those are coals, glowing from the wood getting hotter and hotter, as it burns.”
Experiential education at its finest.
