The girls also enjoyed playing with a winter-themed playdough kit I put together for them. I added in some kid-safe essential oils to really give it a wintery feel (nevermind the 85-degree temperature in the house 😉 ).
We also ate pancakes and worked on our new looms. Miss 2 enjoyed working on her own threading activity while big sisters worked on their looms. Miss 5 used the smaller loom and Miss 8 used the slightly larger lap loom. I want to try this loom next – it looks like it would be a lot of fun as well!
We also started our timeline and rolled a bunch of beeswax candles. Even Miss 2 rolled her own candles! The beeswax smelled so good and they were so proud of their work. Every night at dinner they ask to light their candles. 🙂
We also took out our favorite map so that we could see where Almanzo lived.
Next, the girls painted winter scenes with pastels, watercolor, and salt. Miss 8 painted Almanzo sledding down a big hill on a windy day.
Miss 5 painted a ladder and trees while Miss 2 painted with her favorite color – yellow – and a generous amount of salt.
We also put together a covered wagon. It might sound like a lot but it wasn’t overwhelming at all, especially considering it was spread out over an entire week.
I also pulled out our farm book to read to Miss 2. What a fun week!
