Pin It & Did It: Floam


PinItDidItFLOAM
This summer our yard has been turned into a construction zone (we’re adding on to our house) so the kids and I haven’t spent half the time outside that we normally would have. Instead, we’ve been inside and that’s just something my borderline ADD children just can’t stand. You can only play Operation and Hide and Seek so many times before the “I’m bored” mantra kicks in. Thank goodness for Pinterest. A while back I found this pin for DIY floam, I wouldn’t usually tackle a potentially messing project like this but when I saw there were only two ingredients on the list of supplies I knew we’d have to give it a go. Here’s a few photos of the fun we had!

How To Make A Life-Size Sundial



Next Friday is the Summer Solstice, aka the longest day of the year, so being the self-respecting homeschooler that I am, I decided to turn this into a learning opportunity by making our own sundials. (Well, actually I had another project planned that went totally awry but ended in a good place. You can read about it at Creative Cynchronicity today!) –Erin

100 Days of Play: String Games


100 Days of Play
After spending so much of their time with me you’d think my kids would want a break, but the fact of the matter is, I’ve heard “play with me” at least 15 times a day since we’ve finished our school lessons. So that’s why I’m honored to be a contributor to the 100 Days of Play Blog Hop hosted by Rachel of SunScholars and Maggy from Life at the Zoo. Despite the millions of toys and gadgets to occupy our kids nothing holds a candle to simply playing.



String, or yarn, is something we all have on hand and when I was younger I remember playing string games with friends at school. I always thought it was both challenging and fun and really wanted my kids to give it a try. Mom’s Minivan had the best tutorials I could find that went slowly enough for us to follow along. Witch’s Broomstick is definitely where I would start. Over the course of a couple of days, both my six and seven years old were about to master it.
