I didn’t get a week in review post up last week. Ok, the week before either! I am going to try to do one every week.
I thought I’d include a project from last week, since it turned out so well.
The kids made Shofars. I got the directions from Adventures in Mama Land. The really loved making them.
We used wheat wallpaper paste to paper mache the newspaper onto the forms. Then we covered it with brown paper lunch bags. Once they were dry, we used a mixture of white glue and water to seal it, and make sure all the edges were glued down. They opted to only put one coat on. I think the shofars would have been shiner if they had done more
They really work! I love this picture of them all lined up with their shofars!
Earlier this week, I made a math workstation for the 10 yo boy. I talked more about it here. It really has cut down on the amount of times I have had to say “sit still and work”. And that’s good for both of us.
We are in the process of reading The Chronicles of Narnia – The Dawn Treader in anticipation of the movie coming out in December. The kids are really looking forward to that, and we are reading the book out loud at their insistence. 🙂
