Red Squirrels, Feb 28
We were able to have fire again and the Red Squirrels loved it! First we had a little fire buffet and tested our fire lighting skills, how many matches did it take to light the item, paper, lint, cardboard ect. Ask your Squirrel which one was easiest and which one they struggles with. Then we got to build a fire and practice feeding our fires with the appropriate size wood.
With all the melting and freezing we have had the Squirrels spent some of free time sliding down icy patches or fishing rocks out of the deep slightly frozen ponds. There was some good problem solving and teamwork as they tried different items to pull the rocks out. Lastly we practiced our eagle eyes by finding crayons hidden around our spot.
