Lego Candy Dispenser
If your house is anything like ours, then you have more legos than you know what to do with. Because my kids rarely reassemble the original project that the legos were purchased for, we are often on the hunt for new and creative lego instructions to make new things. We were excited to find the Lego Candy Dispenser instructions created by Sarah at Frugal Fun for Boys & Girls. A video showing how the dispenser works is located at the bottom of this post. The directions provided are really easy to follow. We did have to modify a few pieces because we did not have the exact lego blocks used…
Blue Wave Floats
Inspired by the Shark Bait Ice Cream Floats posted by All Things Mama , we made our own blue summertime treats. While my grown-up taste buds did not particularly enjoy this sugary concoction of Blue Fanta, Vanilla Ice Cream, and Gummy Candies, the kids loved it.
This week, we will explore the history and science of toy making and make a few toys ourselves. We will also go on 2 field trips. The first to the Mini Design Studio where Jackson will have a 3d figurine created of himself as an action figure. We will also visit Babyland General Hospital where Ansley will learn about how Cabbage Patch Dolls are made and adopt one, herself.
Summer break is here. This summer is quite different for us than the last. While we are still exercising caution, we are slowly reintroducing ourselves back into the world. Our weeks will be a mix of at home activities and one weekly field trip where we will take as many safety precautions as possible while still having fun. The plan for the week is simply to have fun. Some highlights include: painting with squirt guns making popcorn balls a sun screen science experiment building an air fort. May 31 – June 4

Schools out for summer!! Sort of. We are pairing down our schedule to do smaller reviews of math/reading and opting for more fun each week. We will also be incorporating a more Camp Covid type schedule once Jackson's school year is over.
We are spending some time at the beach this week and decided to build our lesson plan around a beach theme. Because we operating on a more relaxed schedule, we may not get to all of the activities listed.

All About Moms
Mother's Day is this week so we will read books, make crafts and spend time learning about moms.
Springs means new life is creeping out from everywhere, including deep within the soil, in the trees, and sometimes on the walls. This week we will explore things that crawl. And while this creeps me out a bit, Ansley doesn't shy away from most crawling things. I will take her lead as we explore bugs.
Earth Day is this week! We will explore the importance of taking care of the planet and discuss ways to reduce our own carbon footprint.
