A Book,A Craft, and a Plate with Kate


Welcome to this week's edition of A Book, a Craft, and a Plate with Kate This week we read A Summertime Song, painted water colors for our craft,
and made strawberry ice cream for our snack (or plate).
Princess was happy to have a surprise visit from her Nana as we got
started painting in the backyard.















She hung the paintings on the garden fence to dry...







Here is our home made strawberry ice cream....

I need to read this book. It looks good. Your garden looks amazing. It must be a lot of work.

Love this idea but I've never been one to partcipatw properly. You know I'm craft challenged. Maybe I will try next week.

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 .
