Nature Camp, day three photos

We checked our insect pitfall traps, and held the insects under a magnifier that we made by stretching clear plastic wrap over a bucket, then adding water to the plastic wrap so that it forms a large magnifying lens:

We made art by placing flowers on watercolor paper, and covering the flowers with paper towels:

Then we pounded the flowers with rubber mallets to release the pigments, which soaked into the watercolor paper:

Other activities included the usual singing and climbing trees, and many other brief activities.
