June School Update

Since we're home most of the time, we still keep chipping away at our homeschooling.  Why not...what else are we going to do with 16 hrs of daylight in the summer??? In June, we finished our frog, fox, & vegetable units.

Here are my cutie patooties with their adorable frog treats!
They are super easy to make!  Each frog is just 2 mini pretzel twists, 1 oreo cookie, and 2 m&ms; you can keep the pretzels and m&ms in place with icing or any nut butter.  

I couldn't resist including this sweet pic of my little Christian when he was 3 yrs old.

A friend gave the girls animal shaped sleeping bags for Christmas.
My goofy girl just had to show off her froggie for this pic.  

Fox Unit

We started our Vegetable Unit by Okra printing with paint.

We went to the Farmer's Market.

We made Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins.

Mini & medium muffins...Yummm!

Have you heard about eating a rainbow?  Well, homemade smoothie pops are a delicious way to accomplish this all at once! Here's a list of our smoothie pop concoction:  blueberries (blue/purple), green-leaf lettuce (green), bananas (white), carrots (yellow/orange), strawberries (red) & some Kefir.  I was excited about using our new popsicle molds.

She also sorted several of God's plants into fruit/veggie/flower categories and we did a celery science experiment.
What a fun Vegetable Unit!  
Now I hope that we'll soon think eating veggies is as much fun as learning about them! :-)
