(Almost) Wordless Wednesday!

This week, the boys have had a great time working on their projects!

Big Bro has been very interested in reading and learning about knights.
He drew his project's inspiration from a picture book about knights, namely Knights in Shining Armor by Gail Gibbons, as well as two Usborne Activities - Sticker Dressing books: Soldiers and Knights.

Here are the boys in their knight costumes made by Big Bro:

Little Bro has been working on learning about Native Americans. We happened to come across a craft done by the Cherokee Nation where they pound leaves into fabric and then, quilt the fabric.

Little Bro loved the idea of pounding leaves, more because he wanted to use a hammer. He was not so into the idea of quilting, but was very taken by the idea of hammering various items from nature into paper! Little Bro was more into the process of pounding versus the end product...he had a super time, so am sure that the boys will revisit this technique again soon.

We also found a pdf that you can download for free if you decide that you would like to do leaf pounding too.
Here is a link to my Native American Studies Board on Pinterest, in case you want additional ideas for Native American Studies. 

 What inspired you and your children this week?

We will be off for a few days to spend time with family for Thanksgiving, so hope that everyone has a wonderful rest of their week...

For those of you who will also be enjoying Thanksgiving, wishing you and yours safe travels & happy times with your loved ones too!
