This week has flown by! Monday, Katie had an appointment at Shriners. She's going to be getting a new leg, and it's going to be a different kind of leg.
I'm pretty excited for her, and I'll share more about the difference when she gets it.
I had a fun photoshoot with Katie for Petit Pomme, and we got photo-bombed by the cat!
We painted Chinese Terra Cotta Warriors from Art In History.
We've used several Art In History kits before, and I just love them. Everything you need is included, so it's open the box, access the teacher's guide online, and you're ready to go!
If you'd like to see some of our other ones, we've done Canopic Jars, Tomb Walls, Greek Drinking Vessels, and Greek Kraters. We're going to be doing Japanese Tea Bowls soon.
First we painted the whole warrior light brown.
I so want to go see these in person someday.
The nice thing about these projects is that I can read aloud to the boys while they're painting.
AIH also sells a sealer kit, if you want to give it a protective gloss seal when you're done.
We also learned about Japan's history this week, and the boys wrote haikus. Eli had been building with his K'nex when I was reading, and you can see the influence that had on his poem.
Not a toy, just fun
Not a toy, just fun
Boats, planes, cars, even crossbows
Imagine, then build
In art this week, we went outdoors for inspiration and sketching, then painted inside.
It's good to be reminded to get out of the house. The fresh air and sunshine felt nice.
We worked with watercolors today, and were reminded that they don't always stay put as nicely as thicker paints like tempera or acrylic.
Jack's piece was inspired by the flowers Paul planted for me for my birthday.
Miss Hannah lost another tooth this week. She's sporting a cute gap-toothed smile. I'll have to get a picture of it to share.
In other news, I'm a new Fundanoodle Ambassador! I'd love to have you like my new business Facebook page. I'll be sharing about some of our favorite products over the next few weeks.
