I ask myself this several times a week. Usually while I am printing off an impromptu lesson or handwriting sheet or need a quick explanation for something. My favorite though is watching educational videos. Gamequarium is awesome for this. We use YouTube and Netflix also.
But now I am slightly addicted to blogs. I started ours after being inspired by Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler. I wanted to keep an electronic record of our school year. I figured this would allow me to be better organized when it comes time for our teacher assessment of our annual activities. After all, I believe that Char will appreciate an electronic record she can scroll though instead of the 3 boxes of materials I had last year just for Joey. Oh yeah and a very unorganized "My Pictures" file on my laptop. So Krazy Kuehner Days was born.
Now though I am subscribing to many other blogs. The wealth of ideas from so many other creative homeschoolers is unimaginable!! They share their projects, we share ours. And everyone benefits!! So this post is an example of this.
Last week while reading a new blog I subscribe to by the Frugal Family I saw the coolest project for Lydia. She created a My First Sewing Kit. And it was very basic products. So I jumped on that one! I changed it up a bit using plastic yarn needles for our girls. And we just used a plastic tub to store it in, but here's the photos of the girls "learning" tonight.
Our first attempts at sewing. That is shelf liner.
