We're going to the camping early in the morning!

Pack your backpack, take the tent! We are going to the camping!
Where are we going to live there? We need to build the house, it called - tent!
What are we going to eat there? We will cook soup on the fire!
How we are going to find the road? We need to have a compass!
What are we going to do at the night? We will tell stories!
How we are going to survive in the forest? Oh.... it is a good question....
We learn about compass also. We had a lot of fun by trying turn the arrow!

Let see!

That is how we built the tent!

This is our fireplace and our soup. We put around the tray rocks and discuss  how many pieces of wood we need for our fire place, how long they are, which is longer, which is shorter.....
Next step - we discuss how can we cook the soup - what we use for soup - veggies or fruits, can we add ice cream or not and why? Tim told me that even we can use ice cream, we shouldn't put it with the can!!!!!
Open the can and poor it in the pot!

Everyone probably knows this song:

"Put ........(potato) in the pot, 
Stir it well,
Nice and hot,
We are cooking tasty soup,
For the dinner!
(Русская версия в подкате)

You also can play "Hot potato" Children love this game!

Ok , soup is ready, and it is time for stories around fire place! I choose my favourite: Froggy -Boaster, illustrated by Suteev.
This is very nice story about little Froggy who made a fun of his friend because they did not know how to swim....Finally they sail so fast, and left Froggy far away behind their boat!
So, we built the boat in the same way as friends did!

Do you hear this sound? Oh, no!!!!It is mosquito! Hide in tent!

It is night time! We need light!

We closed the door and were sitting quietly-quietly.....and listen to the sounds.....

We heard mosquito, rain, owl, grass hoper, wolf....Oh, that was scary!
And finally came our teacher Galia and call us to the craft table!
That was wonderful trip and we decided to make a lilly pad from the pond where our little friends build a boat. Look what we made:

Sure, we should make a little frog but that really was time for nap...

So, see you next time and here for more wonderful summer ideas!

Текст песенки для игры "Суп"
Положи в котел .......
Пусть кипит, варит суп, 
Мы готовим вкусный суп
Нам на ужин!
Мы мешаем в котелке, 
Пусть кипит....


  1. Мила, как здорово все объединилось: канадский колорит и картинки Сутеева! Супер! Палатки, огонь - моя страсть!

    1. Мне здорово повезло что детки накануне посмотрели мультфильм "Лягушонок - хвастунишка" и хорошо знали о чем идет речь. Дети сами мне рассказывали что хорошо а что плохо и как построить лодку!

  2. Обожаю Сутеева! Книга с его сказками, выпуска 1975 года, до сих пор хранится у моих родителей!!! Особенно прекрасны иллюстрации, да и сами рассказы волшебно-завораживающие!
    Как здорово, что канадским детям представилась такая прекрасная возможность познакомиться с русским писателем! Спасибо, Мила!

    1. Жанна, здесь в русском комюнити все в порядке и библиотеки, и сады, и кружки и студии разные,даже школа была, но сейчас уже англонизировалась. Было бы желание и все на самом деле зависит от родителей.
