It's a good thing when life gets in the way of blogging, which is exactly what's been going on with our family. Before school started last week, we were enjoying our last remaining unstructured days. A helpful kind of resource this summer has been activity idea books for our kids. When we were staying in Canada last month, we enjoyed The Preschoolers Busy Book.
This month my 7-year-old consulted another book of things to make and do and decided to make a garden on a plate. I was pleased (and relieved) that she managed to do the project entirely on her own, including gathering the materials.
