Home Economics-Lesson #1

Do they teach Home Economics in the 1st grade at school? Well we do at The Schillings Christian Academy. Today was Daniel's first lesson and we made cupcakes for our neighbor friends. They were a hit. He loved that he got to do everything himself, with mommy supervision.

Art: Painting fall trees.

Today was such a great Fall day to create our Fall trees. I first saw this activity on Pinterest and thought it was a great idea. Then a fellow homeschool mom did it with her two kids here and it reminded me to put this on the to-do list. We did ours a little different and used the side of our hand and wrist area for the trunk of the tree and the palm print as the tree's branches and of course our finger prints as the leaves. Daniel and Sydney had a blast creating these. Both liked creating the falling leaves....

Fall Leaves-Painting

Another idea I saw on pinterest about painting fall leaves. I know that God has already painted them and how they turn colors are so beautiful, but we thought we would add some art work to them as well. Each week we will be adding more "leaves" to our tree. I love how these turned out. Daniel enjoyed making these. He said one has a dragon on it...another has a cross and one has the American flag.. can you find these?

Science Experiment #1-Lava Lamp

Well I had found this idea on Pinterest site a couple weeks ago and this past weekend we were watching some kids science show on TV and Daniel was in aww of making this, and begged and begged to do it. I had to get all the ingredients so we couldn't do it until today. So here are our results.

All you need is water, oil, food coloring. On the 2nd try we added alka seltzer for it to bubble. I think he was happy with the end product.
