Leaves and ships

Today as we look outside with the windows open, we see a trail of leaves continuously falling… We promptly decided to do a few fall leaf rubbings.. I think we’ll mail some to daddy over in Afghanistan where the fall colors just might give him a glimpse from home.



We discussed Columbus Day and the girls decided to create the three ships out of brownies. Of Course, the Santa Maria was the largest, so they enjoyed nibbling on the extra pieces we cut away. They drew and cut out their sails and made sure to add the pearls and red robes to their ships as gifts for the natives. They enjoyed this and I pretty much let them go for it after our story. I had my idea of what it would look like, and they had theirs… I think it’s great when the kids can take pride in the creations we do. They even added blue waves to the tin foil.
