Our donut stand morphed, as these ideas usually do. We ended up with a crowd of stop-motion characters, including evil doers + their cats, an angry mother + a colorful, real-life poop emoji. There was some game play indoors, including a *loud* animal arena, and foosball. Because we ended up playing Among Us outside all …
This week we explored fizzing sidewalk chalk – including throwable “bomb” sponges – with lots of vinegar spray. We left a pretty colorful sidewalk behind us. Also popular: board games! We learned several new ones (thanks, Jessica!) + enjoyed popsicles outdoors, multiple times. We’re thinking popsicles need to return every week.
Slime science turned out to be a favorite. And if your slime falls in the dirt, put your feet in it! Next time: more shaving cream.
Thanks to all who participated in our sprinkler + squirt gun fight. Drippy fun was had by all, especially the bystanders.
Picture from before the snow wrecked our picnic habit. Our loose-knit “schedule” normally includes lots of out-of-house activity, so we blast into schooly activities right away. But now we are home constantly, AND have George at home, checking in, telling us to be quiet when he has conference calls. No running to the craft store …
Lots of family tree discussion and making, plus felting and coloring. Mild banter about dress/shoe color. We got no pictures of the food… Thanks, Angela, for taking more pictures!
Lots of candles were dipped, including some funny-shaped ones…. Coloring proved a popular afternoon activity for waiting your turn. Thanks again to Angela Sherman-Winger for many of the photos above.
Thanks to Angela Sherman-Winger for most of the photos above. We built the solar system out of balloons and built a fair amount of snow forts before it became a balloon-popping festival.
Lots of math in play going on, plus some nails and wood. We also played outdoors, not pictured because I am lazy.
We missed many of you this week – lots of illness going around – but we rallied by squeezing dough, playing outside, tug-of-war, charades and then tying up everyone in turn. Next week, maybe you?
