You may remember that the curriculum we are using suggests taking
one day a week as an “exploration” day. A couple of weeks ago, I
confessed that I can’t stand bugs, but for the good of the kids I
sucked it up and went out bug hunting. As you can tell, I survived!
This week’s exploration was much more manageable for me…
Flowers! As far as I know, flowers don’t hide in your walls, beds,
shoes… Just waiting to crawl on you!
The little monkeys have both been given Fisher Price Kid Tough
Cameras in the last couple of years. (Side note: I highly recommend
these cameras… Real digital cameras that stand up to rough and
tough kid stuff). So… They gathered up the cameras and we walked
around the neighborhood taking pics of the flowers we saw- free,
Other flower activities:
– torn paper collage: use scraps of construction paper to create flower
-dried flowers: put a flower between two sheets of paper then put it
under a heavy book (or two) for a week or so.
Homeschooling is a new venture for me… Homeschooling on a tight
budget is a challenge. I want to give my kids amazing experiences. I
realized yesterday that the kids have a much different idea of
amazing than me… A two mile walk, hunting flowers was an
adventure for them.
