My daughter’s friend recently made an awesome video of her Webkinz ideas and my daughter was inspired to do the same. She organized them and set them up and I snapped pictures using an app called “Stop Motion”. We uploaded it to YouTube and she picked out music to go in the background.
We have been using a few new apps lately…here are some that we love!
These first three are all Rube Goldberg machine type games. They are challenging and fun.
The creators of 7 Little Words have come out with a kid version which is also great!
My daughter has been exploring the “Do Ink” app on the ipad and has been creating animations from her drawings.
My daughter is heading to dance camp next week and my current knitting project was becoming tedious, so I decided to make something quick and colorful for her…a granny square bag for her shoes. It is supposed to be lined, but my track record isn’t so great with that. And she doesn’t seem to care. And I have already started another bag. Bah. The instructions for the granny square bag can be found here.
We are at week three with our Tea Time and Poetry or as my daughter calls it- Poetreets! The kids helped me pick up special cookies for this week and we had one of their friends and my mom join us 🙂 My mom even brought strawberries and a new mug to share.
We picked fresh flowers from the yard and added a candle to the table this week.
My son read the camel story from “Just So Stories” to get us started and then we moved on to the poetry and chatting. It is really neat to hear the conversations that the poems spark. I an really enjoying these tea times and I am glad I found Brave Writer!
Some of this week’s books:
My daughter has continued drawing new Webkinz creations…she is now up to 40.
These are the latest additions.
She has been using Amazon to look up current Webkinz and then making changes to their patterns or colors as well as making up Webkinz of her own to fill in what she considers missing animals (like the octopus).
