Pictures from the annual trip to the Black Island Farms corn maze. For the first time in our times of going to this maze the weather was neither stormy nor was the ground a muddy mess. The day was not really cold but cold enough you wanted to keep moving.
Fun activity to do with the kids. It's not a scary Halloween activity although I heard the last two days of this month it will be scary and only for older kids. There were stations to trick or treat at and receive some fun treats. We got free Applebee's kid meals, $10 gift cards to Sparetime, free bowling at Sparetime, and discount tickets to the Ogden Nature Center. Plus it was fun seeing the park at night and decked out. Now I'm anxious to see if they decorate for the Christmas holidays.
The top two pictures of our Nile River replica. We made the Nile river and then flooded the Nile river to see how the silt gets left after a flood.
The bottom picture is a cave painting picture. Nathan thought making a cave painting was fun. We used black construction paper and chalk.
We also made mud bricks and built a house from them. I did not get pictures of the mud brick project. To make mud bricks you mix 2 cups dirt with 1/2 cup flour and add water until its the right consistency to make bricks. I'd say we added maybe 1/4 cup water. Shape the mixture into bricks using your hands. Cover a baking sheet with foil and place formed bricks on the sheet. Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours or until hard.
