Unplugged Monday

Once again we are posting on Mom Unplugged's
Unplugged Group Project. Please pop on over to see what others have done with today's
project titled Toothpicks.
We did not use toothpicks, as Princess has a ton of Popsicle sticks etc, we went
with option number one. She actually used really big ones made for waxing..I think.
We probably got them from freecycle or a friend or family member who knows we
"collect" such items for use in our homeschool.
Here is a picture of the "art" frame she made her Dad as well as the picture of them together
that she drew to put inside. It has a place of honor on his bedside table.
This afternoon we will be learning about MLK Day.
I'll be sure to post about it later.

that looks wonderful. A very special gift for him. I still have to post about ours, we did not do toothpicks either. Sam made something with his Kapla blocks, very cool.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
