Our next Nature Challenge was the Live Green Expo in Plano.
We have never been, and were really looking forward to going!
The first mission was a fun activity to make designs on light sensitive paper.
After exposing the paper to light, you then let it set in water.
We then had to go visit a vendor who sold solar panels.
My husband also sells solar panels.
We didn't tell him that, we just took our stamp.
The second mission was to make a pinwheel,
and go watch the professional kite fliers!
Leo taking a break!
The third mission was to pledge different ways to save water.
And write it on a wall.
Danielle is a pro at writing on walls.
It was funny to find a place where it was encouraged!
I have no idea why Albert Einstein in on a tricycle.
Perhaps they were trying to say "It's smart to cycle.".
Danielle is teaching Leo.
My walls at home can attest that he is a quick learner!
The next mission was to take trash and put in the proper recepticle.
Solar car races!
It wasn't a Nature Challenge Mission, but it sure was fun!
No, it's not Elsie.
She was there promoting an organic yogurt.
They gave us free samples. I don't remember the name.
This was the plastic bag sculptures.
It was our last mission.
It encouraged not throwing away plastic bags.
And offered creative ideas for them.
While I was busy at the plastic bag sculptures,
Leo climbed on a lawn mower.
Glad the keys weren't in it!
We had such a great time!
Leo's favorite part was riding the shuttle buses!
