APIL Event - Scavenger Hunt/Crafts/Spacewalk

Today at APIL (Ascension Parish Inclusive League) we had a scavenger hunt that consisted of things to stimulate all the senses. They collected leaves; looked at bugs and rocks, listened to wind and birds; felt the tree bark, grass, rocks; smelled the pine tree, air, grass and watched clouds and leaves falling to the ground.

After the scavenger hunt, we went inside to make crafts with the leaves we collected. We placed leaves under white paper and colored over the leaf forming the outline.

They glued the leaves they found on construction paper to form "leaf booklets".

There was a fundraising event setting up for the afternoon at the park and they allowed our group to use the space walk.
My daughter and director of the APIL program decided to join the fun.

The fundraising group were kind enough to allow us to purchase sno cones even though their event wasn't scheduled to start for a couple of hours. The temperature was very warm so the sno cones were a welcome treat.

The next APIL event will be a water day and is scheduled for the end of the month. Even though it was hot, we all had a fun time.
