To wander through the forest in search of mystery… to tread upon unknown ground… to experience a space for the very first time on a quest for the perfect secret hide out… These are the things that childhood is made of.
*Near the water *Wild Flowers *Wild Strawberries
*Sticks *Trees for shade *A Rainbow
These are the things that a hideout is made of— according to the preschoolers. With an ideal in their mind's eye and tenacity in their hearts, the children ventured out blazing trails to find a magical place that they could call their own. They fearlessly pushed themselves farther than they have ever gone, deeper than they ever dared, to a place where the comfort of the familiar was far out of reach. They were in search of a mystery. An adventure.
And they found it.
