We are terribly excited around here. Thanks to an extremely generous family, we headed to Florida! The kids are very excited; they have never been to the ocean and know only the freshwater awesomeness of Lake Michigan. Maybelle, like me, is afraid of anything that can both sting or bite AND swim, so she will stick with me on the shore while everyone else frolics in the salty water.
Naturally, I launched an extensive Homeschool Curriculum on Florida wildlife, flora and fauna, and the ocean. The kids came up with questions that we could ask tour guides or park rangers, and then thought it would be a good idea to put them into a “Question Box”.
I am so seriously uncrafty they had to come up with the whole thing. They took felt and covered a Kleenex box, then I helped push some brads in to hold it in place. I also bought them foam stickers, not realizing foam wouldn’t stick to felt very well. Regardless, they did a fantastic job.
We haven’t decided yet who has to try and get through security with this as a carry on, but we’ll cross that metal detector when we get to it.
