One of my homeschooling online groups had the great idea to send each other Valentine’s Day cards! There were so many who wanted to participate, that we got filed into groups so we wouldn’t have to send out bazillions. This was a 3-4 hour process anyway, with the whole family participating – a family craft night.

Satori did almost all the work, and I cannot believe she persevered through it all. She wrote all the names and signed the cards. She stuck on all the stickers and items, and stamped the  hieroglyphs.

Yep, since Satori memorized her hieroglyphs, she stamped each child’s name in hieroglyphs! She knew all the letters except some rare ones.

We did this assembly line, with Satori doing the writing/sticking/stamping, and daddy doing the gluing and glittering, and mama organizing and addressing the envelopes.

And once we were done, Satori sealed them with a kiss.

Satori and I celebrated Earth Day 2009 today. Once I told her that Earth Day was a holiday, she got very excited and said we can help keep the earth healthy! Exactly the point my dear. 🙂

We discussed ways we can keep the earth healthy and clean and then after dinner we made the earth. Of course I got a chance to throw in a geography lesson. 🙂 We’re going over the 7 continents this week as part of our new phase of homeschooling (more about that later), so I whipped up a quick project, only figuring out what to make as I scrimmaged around in our craft room.

Foam Earth

  • Foam sheets in blue, green, white, brown (we lucked out and had some blue foam circles lying around)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • String

To start, I very roughly cut out some basic continent shapes. Most of the continents were green shapes, with Antarctica being white. Satori ran to get her tiny earth globe, and then glued the first side of continents, matching up the shapes to her globe. She pasted Antarctica on the bottom before even getting her globe though!

After all continents were glued on, we looked at our globe, decided to add Greenland as another white land mass. Then to demonstrate a few mountain ranges, we also glued on brown strips to add more dimension (and color) to our earth!

Side 1 was North America, South America and Antarctica.

Side 2 was Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, and Antarctica again.

Remember that this was a last-minute project, I very roughly cut out the continents, and gave Satori the liberty to paste them on as she saw fit. So things may not be totally geographically accurate and to scale. 😉

As you can see, we punched a hole and strung it up for it to twirl around and remind us of our beautiful and wondrous earth!

The weather was sunny, 60’s and beautiful on the farm in Wisconsin today! It was fun seeing some of the relatives, and after our Scrabble marathon, I thought I’d add just a few photos from the day.

These photos may look familiar, we took them tonight and posted them to the previous post. But thanks to the coolest website – Picnik, I was able to create this Valentine’s card!

Happy Valentine's Day!
