The afternoon was spent doing an activity via Tanglewood 4H camp. Our 4H group coordinated them coming and to help allay the cost of the instructors, we opened it up to other homeschoolers. The younger group (ended up being about K-3) did an activity on fall. The older group (4th grade and up) did a team building exercise. I flitted between all the groups. There were four - two younger and two older - and my boys were all split up in to three of them. Some photos of the afternoon....

One of the older groups. They had to go through these squares like a maze. They had to figure out the path and help each other through. Similar to an electronic Simon Says game.

This poor bunny was confused and needed to call....

...the help line to figure out what it should do in the fall.

The younger group was completely enthralled with the whole thing.

The other older group working through their "maze." That's Lego-Man hopping through.

Almost done!

The youngers headed into the wooded area to check out what they could find for fall items. 

Then using packing tape around their wrists - sticky side out - they made fall bracelets. These were a hit!

We plan to do more classes. Tanglewood is a great program.
