Luke 1:31 -You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.
Time for a little creativity. We are using Dollar $$ store tongue depressors and twine, paint and pipe cleaners out of our craft stash. Every item that we used (minus the hot glue gun) can be picked up at a Dollar store to keep this craft inexpensive.
You will need:
6 tongue depressors
(3 whole, 3 cut in half
and one half cut again in half)
Hot Glue works best – But if not available, use school glue
Twine, scissors, 1 gold or silver pipe cleaner, sharpie marker, and paint
Assemble the Manger using 3 whole and 2 half depressors.
Add Mary and Joseph
Wrap twine around baby Jesus and glue together cradle and baby Jesus to the Manger.
Add angel to the top and create a halo with pipe cleaners.
Getting your homeschooled kids up and active can sometimes be a daunting task. We discovered geocaching almost 10 years ago and are still having fun. Now that the kids are bigger (and some are driving), they like to go out and some of them have created their own geocaching profiles too.
Geocaching is basically a GPS “treasure-hunt”. You are looking for a container where you sign your name and put it back for the next person. There is a website at www.geocaching.com. You can also download an app at the google play store.
****Note: It is a RIVER OTTER, not a SEA OTTER in the video****
What a fantastic time we as a family had up in Williams, AZ visiting Bearizona for their fall homeschool day. Bearizona is an amazing zoo type park in Northern Arizona. It is on 160 acres and comes in 2 parts. The first is a 3-mile drive through where you can see many animals in a more natural environment. The second part is a zoo where you can walk through.
Check out our adventure in video and photos below. This park gets a 2 thumbs up from our homeschooling family! And we plan on going again!
Today’s review is on the MunchPak. It is a snack delivery program that contains snack foods from around the world. We chose a monthly subscription and chose the original box which contains 10+ items. It was the perfect size for use to try everything.
We didn’t wait long for the box and it was less than $25 dollars for the one that we chose. It was delivered only 3 days after we ordered it. WOW! And there was a variety of snacks from 7 different countries. I loved that they were labeled by country in the box and each of the kids found something that they link.
Laughs and giggles went around the table along with the foods. I foresee us studying each of the countries that we received foods from in our homeschool program.
This received a 2-Thumbs up from everyone in our house!!
