Although it happens frequently, it still takes me by surprise…the world of gardening/sustainability and general green living regularly crosses over into homeschooling…and vice versa.
Play at Home Mom has some great ideas for encouraging learning through play – which is kind of perfect in my book.
As for the 75 Kid Activities my favorites included:
- Glow sticks in the bathtub
- Cloud watching
- Mini rainbow volcanoes
- Moon phases with Oreos
- Dino dig
- Fly a kite
- Giant bubbles
- Crayon rocks
- Tear drop volcanoes
- Dollar store shopping (not that my kiddo needs any more crap in her room…but)
It was a nice reminder of how much she can learn through fun and experimentation. And I love that idea. Now I just need to put it into practice!
