And this is why homeschooling is such fun. We were studying the Maori Warriors. He-Man was voted to be our guinea pig. We had lots of fun using (washable) crayola markers to try and replicate some of the designs we saw. This is going to be a lovely blackmail shot later in life.

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday we read “Bartholomew and the Oobleck” and we made our own Oobleck (corn starch, water and food coloring). This worked with science for the Kindergartener and Preschooler (is it a solid or a liquid? – states of matter), but even the 3rd grader loves playing with oobleck. Who… Read More Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
