American Girl Club - FIELD Trip
American Girl - Kaya - the Field Trip!
For our field trip we visited Toltec Indian Mounds, a state park here in Arkansas.
We took a guided tour of the park, and learned about the Indians that had built these impressive mounds. (No, they weren't Kaya's tribe...but, we did our best!)
The MCA (masculine club of awesomeness) had their own special session getting to try out Indian weapons. Spear throwing and blow guns! Does it get any better for a bunch of boys?
The girls made clay coil pots and animals in their own session as well!
In addition to the tour and activities, we were treated to Indian story-telling and fun Indian games! (I highly recommend this park - the rangers were so knowledgeable and wonderful with the kiddos!)
What an awesome ending for our Kaya study! This group has become so close, and we are loving getting to learn together. We can't wait for Felicity in the fall!
