As many of you know we home school through a private school's Independent Studies Program, so Emily attends choir practice twice a week and has all day Friday classes twice a month. On Thursday our home aide came to visit and on Friday it happened to be my day for lunch and recess duty. I think the schedule irregularities threw me off just a bit.
Speaking of homeschooling, this year I decided it would be fun for Emily and I to do art together. So whatever art project I have her accomplish, I try my hand at it as well. This week we made salt art pictures which are simple but pretty. All you need is some black construction paper, some glue, some salt, and some water color paints. The idea is to draw your picture with glue, sprinkle it with salt, and when it is dry, paint the salt. This would be a great project for children both young and old.
