Virtual Camp Day 2: Birds & Butterflies of Saskatchewan
Listen to a story about the Land of the Living skies, make a pinwheel, and stare up at the clouds in the sky. Then, put your creativity to the test painting the Northern Lights.
As you complete each activity, share your work with other campers and the WDM on this week’s Kudoboard.
Caregiver note: This is not a private board. Please make sure your children do not post anything you are uncomfortable with them sharing.

Activity #2: Which Birds Like Your Neighbourhood Best?
In this next activity, you are going to go birdwatching. You’ll mark down each time you see one of the birds in the chart. After one week, you can see which birds like to spend time where you live.
Share your observations or photos of birds you spot in this week’s Kudoboard.
Activity #3: Make a Bird Feeder
In this next activity, we’re going to make a bird feeder for some of the birds in our backyards, right here in Saskatchewan. Some of the most seen birds in Saskatchewan towns and cities are robins, finches, sparrows, crows and blue jays.
Activity #4: Identifying Butterflies
Learn about three common Saskatchewan butterflies – the white admiral, the mourning cloak, and the cabbage white. Then, draw the wing patterns of those butterflies.
Activity #5: Butterfly Bracelet Craft
Watch the video to learn how to make your own butterfly bracelet.
When you are done making your bracelet, share it on this week’s Kudoboard.
