Last weekend we had an outdoor learning, birthday adventure. My youngest daughter turned 8 years old and for her birthday my in-laws arranged for our family to take a private tour of a conservation area’s Raptor Centre. My daughter has been obsessed with learning about owls for months now. This gift was perfect. We had been to the Mountsberg Conservation Area before and we knew there was a great outdoor display of birds. With snowpants on, we headed out for our adventure. We spent time indoors learning about owls, vultures, falcons and shrikes. It was awesome. My daughters even had an opportunity to hold a shriek owl…how cool is that?!
Then we went outside to check out the bald eagles, golden eagles and the beautiful snowy owl. The kids took some time to play in the snow.There was so much snow to play in. All in all, it was an incredible day. Everyone learned something new and left with rosy red cheeks from our time in the snow.
The last Outdoor Play Party was filled with some great posts. Thanks for linking up. Here are a few of my favourites from the last party.How Wee Learn’s takes “summer” activities into the winter
