As a teacher I was terrible at coming up with my own ideas, but I could always steal others' ideas and make them work for my own situation. Homeschooling seems to work the same for me. This fun 3D bird drawing went over great with the boys.
I folded the paper as directed, then stapled the beaks to paper plates. The boys saw this and immediately turned them into masks. They decorated a bit
and then a bit more
and then we spent the next half hour flying them around the house.
Mine says "tweet" and eats berries, Noah's says "quack" and eats worms, and Nate's makes airplane sounds and eats oatmeal (of course!).
I'm Noah, 7.5 years old. I get into trouble with my brother Nate, 5 years old. And my brother Owen, he's 2, but I don't get into very much trouble with him, so he's better. And I have a good Mom and Dad. My mom's 36 right now and my dad's 37.
