So we had a wonderful time on our family field trip to Cochran Mill Nature Center for a class on Fungus! Mr. T had a blast with his sweet friends playing outside and looking for the scavenger hunt clues about mushrooms. He really enjoyed taking apart his mushroom and looking through the big viewer.
He didn’t quite get the microscope, but at 2, we’ll cut him some slack. And he thought the mushroom tasted great! (No, that wasn’t part of the experiment, but what can you do with an all boy toddler who likes to eat?)
We also got a Back to the Roots mushroom kit we are starting today so look for our review of the yummy fungus we are going to grow! 🙂
