Let's Go Camping BOM Block Three: Animal Crossing
We are having so much fun with Pat’s theme this year, 'Let’s Go Camping!' March means it’s time to dig out our camping gear and have it ready to go on when it’s time for summer adventures.
The block download is after Pat's camping discussion down below.
The supply list and blocks during the year will always be found at our landing page for the mystery. You'll find a list of participating shops here. The four prior years are also still available at the ‘Mystery BOM’ tab above.
And you will want to visit Pat’s page for additional TIPS & to enter your block for a chance to win her giveaway each month!
Pat Sloan About On This Month's Block
Block #3 is ‘Animal Crossings.’ From bears in the woods to a flock of pink flamingos... we all need to watch for the animals who live where we go camping.
Our National park system has great warning signs… well maybe not for flamingos... but for rattle snakes and bears. (I just happen to love Pink Flamingos, and I’m a glamper kind of gal!)
Many times the warning is there so we are careful to store food away and to also be sure we know where ‘The wild things roam.’ We don’t want to encounter a surprise!
This is a great page at Yellowstone National park on safety where they talk about animals and how to be safe when camping and hiking in the parks.
The other animal crossings are fun!
Like bird watching while camping. The Audubon Society of Virginia (where I live) has a list of ‘hot spots’ for birding, I bet your state does too. Click here to take a look.
While camping you might be lucky to see beautiful eagles. I wondered where the best place to spot eagles is... here is a nice list.
One year while teaching in Maine, I saw moose crossing signs everywhere. We looked for them, we watched for them, and never saw a single moose!
I used the traditional Bear Paw block this month to represent our Animal Crossing, I can’t wait to see your blocks!
