Scoop out a generous amount of mixed dry beans into a plate or on a placemat.
Let them explore!
It’s really as easy as it sounds, and it can be done with kids of any age. Save the beans for a meal or let the kids use them to make collages or for sensory play for toddlers. […]
We’re continuing to craft, color, read, and discuss food groups and nutrition. We plan on moving on to gardening, planting, seeds and the like soon. The tide is turning for the first half of the week to WARM!! So we’ll be spending (or at least the kids) a lot more time outdoors. Mom needs to […]
I’m going back through all the resources I bookmarked online, and getting in all the books we had ordered to finish up nutrition. Also finishing up the multitude of St. Patrick’s Day pages I had printed. I don’t think I’d even gotten through half of them before we ran out of paper, so I’ll have […]
The 3 year old has caught something and of course immediately sneezed in my face so I’m only about half here this week. Baby got it too, so she was up half the night Sunday. So far the 6 year old is the only one that has avoided it. No idea how. We ended up […]
Over the weekend the kids went to a ‘Fancy Tea’ compliments of the local library. There were about 12 kids there, and my husband had the baby.. toddler, well whatever she is for the morning and ran a couple of errands while I was with the big kids. They got necklaces, made crafts, drank tea, […]

Used toothpicks to count out 1-6 and place them on the 1fish 2 fish page […]
This weekend’s happenings seemed to stem a lot from a GoodReads Preview book that I read and passed down to my 6 year old. It’s called Time Flight. Briefly, a boy loses a paper airplane and goes on a marvelous adventure. Before she had even finished reading it…. Saturday the kids learned about and […]
Experiments are a fun part of our home schooling adventure. Since the kids are still young (3 and 6), I try and base them on things that they like and/or that are easy to visualize. Since all kids love candy and I’d planned to have them count, sort, and graph candy before they ate it […]
