We skipped ahead a week… but I know everyone else is jumping around a somewhat too. We were a bit behind on some of our apple activities so I wanted to keep that theme going. Also, our leaves are also just finally coming into full color. So next week will be a better week to gather pretty leaves to go along with the Leaf Man story and I’m really looking forward to the stained glass project. It adds such pretty color to the house.
This week we made our Apple Prints. We only had one apple left in the house and the kids were not happy that they couldn’t eat it after we used if for the prints. We are going to try and sneak in another apple picking trip this weekend if we can.
This week we are working on Week Eight of our Harvest Time unit. I will be posting a weekly update to give everyone a space to chat about the program. If you would like more information about the program you can learn more and download the free homeschooling curriculum on our Harvest Time page. All of the directions for the art projects, recipes and activities are included in the curriculum guide. If your family is participating in the Harvest Time curriculum either for homeschooling or after school enrichment we would love to hear about it! Please leave a comment in this post in regards to your experiences with Harvest Time’s Week Eight activities. You are welcome, and highly encouraged to leave links to your Harvest Time’s Week Eight blog posts or pictures in the comment section of this post.
