Building Creatively
Naomi is on a building kick.

She built with these. Just touch one end to a damp cloth and stick them together to form whatever you’d like. Even this crown got MUCH bigger.

Drew made her some sweet cedar branch blocks–such a simple and fun toy! The girls both love them.

And, she always loves these geometric shapes.

Mean Tiger–at least agitated…

We visited animals at the Science Center yesterday. Leviah & I are still recovering from a near-fatal tiger attack (had it not been for what doesn’t seem like strong enough fencing).

There are some lettuce plants growing in the green house, with it being our first year with the greenhouse it does feel a bit like cheating to have sprouting outside in February.

And, we’re studying 6 this week. Our curriculum tells us to look at hexagons, stars of David, and honeycomb (see all the stars?). We are fortunate to have honeycomb laying around, but amazed to notice all the 6 pointed stars!

    I love that you have honeycomb laying around. Those blocks are lovely. I've been wanting to cut the kids some rustic style blocks like that.

    What a wonderful post! Studying the hexagons in honeycomb is always so interesting. Beautiful building going on!

    thanks all–the honeycomb is so fascinating. our life is fuller with the bees in it, that's for sure!
