This week we built the 3D Parthenon Puzzle! (We being Brianna, that is.) She worked on it while I finished reading The Children's Homer: The Adventures of Odysseus and the Tale of Troy aloud to the kids.
She's done a few of these puzzles, and they go together faster every time.
It seems the Parthenon makes a lovely hat, as well. Who knew?
Jack is fiercely concentrating on his artwork. He had a hard time with this one. I don't know if it was an off day, or perfectionist tendencies, but I'm hoping our next project goes better.
Eli blending watercolor crayons with a wet paintbrush. We're enjoying the new art curriculum we're in the process of reviewing. I can't wait to share more of our projects with you!
Speaking of upcoming reviews...! We watched a movie and then did a craft to go along with it this week. Can you see what's on the screen?
One of my readers recently linked me to an Etsy shop selling awesome wooden blanks, including penguins!
We had a birthday this week!
Jack is double digits now. Time to update the sidebar picture.
The Lego set from Buddy & Grandpa Gino was a big hit, and these two spent the rest of the evening assembling.
The penguins were a 2 day project, to allow paint to dry. Here they are finished. I have some other wood cutouts from this shop for us to work on in the future. Pretty excited about some that I got for next school year.
Next week is going to be a little different as I'm off to Disneyland with a couple of the kids for a little holiday. School won't happen while I'm gone (although, I do hope to have Jack work on Math and Spelling You See during that time), so I won't have a Weekly Wrap Up post next week. I've scheduled a couple posts for while I'm gone, but I won't be promoting them from afar. If you see something you like, please feel free to share it for me!
