We had a fun week ~ more fun than work! Emily did the very basics this week. We spent most of our time doing fun activities in honor of Earth Day’s 40th anniversary, which was April 22nd.
The kids did an experiment to see if they could undo water pollution.
We made Shrinky Dinks Earth Day Pendants (I love Shrinky Dinks!).
We decided to go on a long walk and explore. Emily made an Earth Day bag to hold any treasures she found.
On our walk we discovered some pretty flowers
lots of dandelion seeds
and some friendly beasts!
Emily made a bookmark out of some of the leaves and a flower petal she found. I used our hot laminator to cover the bookmark. I was afraid it might burn the flower petal but it didn’t. Next time we will let the flowers dry (between a book) before we used them. They bleed a little.
The kids made some Earth cookies for a tea party. I’m very proud of myself because I helped make the cookies, and watched them eat them but I didn’t eat any!
We had our tea party outside. Our center piece was some of the treasures the kids found on our walk.
Sometimes it’s nice to slow down and have a cup of tea!
Hope everyone else had a great week! Visit Kris at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see what other homeschoolers have been doing this week .
