Halfway through January and the word Creative is still bouncing around my brain. One goal I had for myself was to follow through on craft and history projects with the kids in school. I know…creativity involves discipline? For me, it does.
So, when the book suggested building the Hanging Gardens of Babylon…we got out those Legos:
And when the history book (Story of the World: Book 1) suggested building a volcano to reenact the destruction of the island of Thera (from whence the story of the lost city of Atlantis comes), we got to work. I actually made it over to Michael’s and bought the plaster of paris. We actually got the plaster of paris to stick to the side of an empty water bottle (what form of a volcano is this??) and we mixed that vinegar, dishsoap and baking soda.
It really just looked like an exploding dreamsicle.
But hopefully it will stick in their memories!
