Unplug Your Kids Group Project
Mom Unplugged has set forth another challenge....do something
with yarn or string. Be sure to link back to her here,
if you decide to give it a try. I hope you do.
I did not know what to do, so...
Princess was given access to some materials, a bit of yarn and her usual glue,crayons,
etc in the cabinet. I told her that her mission,should she choose to accept it,
was to make something using that yarn.
She snorted, yes snorted as if my challenge was weak !
Then ,she started rooting around in the cabinet, pulling out paper,glue,sparkles.
She told me that she had decided to make a version of birdfeeder that we do with oranges.
Unfortunately, we were out of oranges, so she got a couple of plastic cups out from our science stuff (we use them for seed starting) and asked me to put holes on each side like we do the oranges. I don't allow her to use the hole punch.
She cut the yarn and strung them through the holes.I had to knot them for her.
She asked me to give her seed to fill them with, and I told her I would do that in the morning.
It is very cold out in the garage now.
Then she decided to draw some birds and glue on feathers, the feathers were in with the hole punch for some reason....then she told me this was all related to the Wright Brothers, because
they made a plane to fly like the birds.
Hey, the t.v. was off and my kid still learned stuff!! Who would have thunk it? ;-)
We filled them with birdseed and hung them from a tree in the backyard.
