Homeschool Activities

The kids built a ziggurat (an ancient Mesopotamian temple) We are using the Story of the World curriculum, which I LOVE!!! We were also excited to find this song while studying the Mesopotamian's.  

 Mason trims the wheat grass to throw into our smoothies which helps his motor skills.

Maya does a science experiment "magic trick" with magnets. She believes in safety first, hence the goggles.

Madelyn learns to stack. 
Why is it that we even buy things for our kids at this age? You get them a gift, they play with box and wrapping paper. You buy them blocks to stack, and they stack the toilet paper!

A field trip to a museum is entertaining as well as educational.

We read a little bit at bedtime and the kids are enjoying it (along with my commentary)

Great activities... I love the stacking bit. yea, why buy toys, when so many is around. In my childhood days, toys are things we found or created!

I envy your patience to homeschool. I'll have to take comfort that my son's school still has a 4H club and the entire school from K-8 is only 98 students. We'll see how it goes as he's just about to start.


I certainly understand why you home school. I posted about the bureaucratic nonsense regarding a school garden. I can only imagine how nutty it is in public schools now. What a shame.

What museum has a giant tortoise? That is way cool.
