Tomorrow I'll be running a session at our local home ed group on The Brain, so today we ran through a prototype 'brain hat', just to make sure everything will go as planned.
You can print the free brain hat templates here at Ellen McHenry's Basement website
Meanwhile, I was trying to get around to doing something - *anything* - for St George's Day.
We're not great at doing anything for special days or festivals. I always have good intentions, but the date comes and goes and even though I know lots of great resources for all these excuses to do a themed something, somehow we never get around to it.
Finally, today we had a brief stint on St George. Of course, being an independent-minded child, dd did it *her* way. She flatly refused to colour in the wonderful picture from Activity Village here and barely skimmed a read through the Scholastic St George's Day resources here . But she did get excited about making a dragon sock puppet here
These were once my favourite pair of stripey socks, many years ago, and I can't think of a better way to reuse them :)
