Build a Little Dam

Build a little dam!

First, put down the big rocks, then fill in the holes with some smaller ones.

It's starting to make a pool!

Now find some muddy clumps of leaves.  There usually are some around the edges of streams.  They are good for blocking some of the leaks.

Put some gravel and sand on top of the muddy clumps of leaves, and you should have a pretty good dam.  Watch the little pool fill up!

Looks like fun. Take care.

Yesterday we flew over the Swiss Alps - it was as clear as a bell. Perhaps your little son was down there building his dams.

We have a small creek behind our boys love to make damns!
