Gardening is fun for all ages, and a great science lesson. May I recommend the book Onions in my Boots for beginners. You can plant a Marian Garden or and indoor garden. Recently we planted grass in plastic cups with soil. poked holes in the cup bottom, then put it in another cup with water and googly eyes! It sprouted to 6” in one week! Time for a haircut.
The little sheep on my ledge I found on Oriental Trading. My kids love watching Shaun the Sheep and Timmy Time, admittedly so do I! So it only seemed right that The Letter S be for Sheep, Shepherd and Spring!
Little Timmy here is going to be covered in cotton balls along with his other friends. We got this idea from Catholic Icing. Find more sheep fun on my Good Shepherd post.
And speaking of the kitchen, we like to dye eggs. Here is an idea for making your Ressurection Eggs symbols ON the eggs! Use white crayon to draw symbols on the eggs before adding them to the dye. Ooh pretty!
May Day Traditions can be so much fun! Click HERE for TLC’s ideas for kids. One of our new traditions is to decorate flowerpots to deliver real flowers to friends and family. With our local homeschool group I will lead a class in May Day activities, including preschool threading Floral Leis, elementary kids making Flower Pots to give away, and Teens playing Nine Men Morris or Merrelles (History and 3D Game Software).
