Camp Making Outdoors Magnificent

I can do this! I am a Mom. Camp MOM

The children wake up so excited to go to camp!

“Camp is closed today”, Mom says

Indoors is boring!

Mom in a panic takes them outside.

We are going to make bubbles. Lets count how many bubbles we can blow- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

The doorbell rings, Hello Señora Garcia, how are you? Muy bien, Mrs. Thomas. I saw the bubbles coming from your backyard and the kids counting 1,2,3,4,5. Can my grandkids and I join you? I can sing nursey rhymes: wheels on the bus

The doorbell rings again, Hello Mr. Brown, I saw the bubbles coming out the backyard 1,2 3, 4,5, I heard the kids singing the nursey rhyme the wheels of the bus goes round and round. Camp is closed today and I can sure use the help with the little ones. I can play hide and go seek with the kids.

The doorbell rings again. Hello katie , Hello Mrs. Thomas, I saw the bubbles coming out your backyard 1,2,3,4,5 , I heard the kids singing the wheels on the bus , and the kids playing hide and go seek, The camp is closed today and I have to watch my little brother and sister. Can we join the fun? I can read to the kids: the dog barks the cat meow, the cow moo, lion roars.

Kids came from everywhere. Camp maybe closed today, but Camp M.O.M is open to the community.

Interesting use of MOM : Making Outdoors Magnificent
Toddlers will enjoy the counting.
Did you consider other languages to say hello?
The other families could say it.
Just a thought.

Wonderful story. The anxious mom plans and eventually executes a family camp. The diversity is in the several other families bring their children. Well done.
