I can be a complainer sometimes about living in a smaller community and not having enough fun things "to do." But we belong to a homeschool group that does some really really fun things, so I'll quit complaining now...because last Friday was a 10!
Free Enterprise Day is a fun activity that another homeschool mom came up with to help show the kids how the free market works. I'm not sure if that was entirely the case on Friday, or if they just had a blast making cool things to sell.
My kids made play dough and paper airplanes.....
I should have gotten a better pic of their actual play dough because it looked so cute, but I will definitely share the recipe soon because it's the best playdough ever!
Each kid got a bag of play money and got 45 minutes to shop around or they could work their own shop.
Each shop had an "open/closed" sign and if they felt like going out on the town, they'd just close up shop and get to it.
Is it bragging if I said Noah's planes sold out in record time? :)
But does it count if his brother and sister bought several?
These kids were so creative with what they made...jewelry, cards, little purses, baked goods.
Some girls were even painting fingernails.
This was after Jack disappeared and reappeared with an armload of stuff for his sissy.
What a fun day!
And just another reason why I love homeschooling :)
PS: I've gotten several email about homeschooling lately, so I'm working on a "getting started" post for those of you that are interested. And thanks for asking...I'm flattered that you think I know what I'm doing :) HA!
