It's so neat to see how much it has grown! I have early pictures in my June posts of when we first planted everything.
Kathleen's face here cracks me up, she was like " this plant is huge Mommy!"
A few could have stayed on the vine a bit longer, but they were so excited I didn't have the heart to tell them. :-)
Hayley found some feather's in the yard she collected. Then came in and made a necklace from some of them.
This is a picture of a bird feeder Jerry made me by hand about 13 years ago. It is suffering some wear and tear but I can't part with it. I love the work he put into it.
It's definitely earned some "character"
Next we worked on a boat craft today. We started with a styrofoam bowl and cut the bottom off, you could also use a plate for a larger base.
Then you need glue, triangles cut from construction paper, toothpicks, tissue paper, egg carton cut apart.
Glue tissue paper to styrofoam base, cut extra edges off.
Then place glue on the triangle (sails) place toothpick between two triangles.
Next we read a book about gardening. This is a wonderful book for young readers to learn about starting a garden and caring for it. Great illustrations also! It's called How Groundhogs Garden Grew by Lynne Cherry
Another really cute one we read to help them learn about different kinds of bugs was
Ant, Ant, Ant, (An insect chant) by April Pulley Sayre
It's a really cute book, with great pictures! The girls got lots of giggles from this one. :-)
Then I decided to rent a classic movie for the girls to watch:
I always loved this movie ever since I saw it when I was little. So popcorn and a movie rounds up our afternoon.
I'm still without a stove as we are trying to get a new coil ordered so I'll have to get creative for dinner again.
I'm also planning more tea parties with different themes for the girls.
Hope you have a wonderful evening!
