The past week has been a busy one. I finished up the costumes for the Christmas pageant (we had a shepherd, a sheep, and a super hero). For Noah, I took a man’s XL red t-shirt from the thrift store and cut off the front and sleeves to get the cape shape I wanted. I added a yellow S to the back from scraps. Then I used a sleeve to make the hat (no sewing required) and some duct tape and hot glue to make the pop-bottle jet pack.
We celebrated Christmas with my in-laws. Our first year hosting! With the house quiet again, the kidlets are now having lots of fun playing with things like foam gliders and a cardboard space shuttle.
We finished off our 2 week mini unit study on space with a taste test of astronaut “food” — pre-packaged freeze dried ice creams and strawberries from the science museum. I also had the kids create bar charts of each type of food and how many people liked it.
And I made these amazingly yummy buns I found the recipe for on Pinterest. Check it out, their pictures are far nicer than mine! 🙂
