Squirt Gun Painting – A Fun Twist For Summer

The last couple weeks we have been cooped up in the house with being sick and it also has rained so many of them days as well. We finally had a break from the rain yesterday. It was beautiful outside too. It was a little windy but I think the wind was perfect as it dried our paintings pretty fast! We decided to try squirt gun painting. It is definitely a fun twist on painting outside in the summer. It turns out abstract!

Lightning Literature & Composition Grade 2 Review

 

 

It has been hard for me to find something that I like and my daughter likes with both reading and writing. I am happy to say I have finally found something that we both liked and agreed upon. We are currently enjoying Lightning Literature & Composition Grade 2 from Hewitt Homeschooling. For this review I did receive both a Teacher’s Guide and Student Workbook. The picture books I have had to borrow from the library, and I have bought the chapter books that go along with this.

STEAM LAB – DIY Make Your Own Bouncy Ball

Last night we attended the first series of five in the STEAM LAB of one of the local libraries. This was the Science portion of it. The kids got to do 5 different hands on activities. The library did a very good job at organizing this event and I can’t wait for the next one which is Technology. I believe it has to do with programming robots.

Cherry Country Muffins Recipe

This is getting to be my favorite time of year. Well one of them anyway. In another couple weeks it will be cherry picking time! I love making cherry pie filling, and whatever other recipe I can find for cherries. It’s actually strawberry picking time. It’s been raining so much here that we haven’t been able to go. Hoping to go on Tuesday.

Ooey Gooey Slime Fun

My daughter has been wanting to make this ooey gooey slime…… and ooey gooey is what it is alright…. I caution you as you make this that this is very messy!! Today was the first day all week I have finally felt up to doing things. I got out all the supplies and surprised her. Can’t say she was really excited about the feel at first and seemed a little discouraged that it wasn’t working….it just took a little time.

What You Need:

One CLEAR 5 oz bottle of Elmers Glue – NOTE It must be the clear glue or it will NOT work.
