The girls love tracing and practicing letters and I found this great site that allows you to write a short phrase and generate a practice worksheet instantly.
So we made some. A whole lot, actually.
They have been providing us with quite a bit of entertainment. There are several styles of handwriting to choose from and we can't seem to stop making them.
- In the disgusting but very thrilling category—I used a tip from FOODday (in our local newspaper, The Oregonian) and made a fruit fly trap. It's mashed up fruit in a small bowl with a little apple cider vinegar on top. You cover it with plastic wrap and punch little holes on top and the fruit flies can get in, but not out. It works very well and is so gross!
- Boomerang, that cool kids podcast I mentioned a bit back, now has an entire full length episode available for FREE on their site. Very cool.
- I am loving this pincushion by SeaPinks a whole lot. All of her items are just lovely.
