Making Ants

Since school has been out this summer, I've tried to continue some "school" here at home. We work on some letter recognition, phonics, and math, but I also try to include some science and art. We don't do "school" everyday, but on those days we spend at home we do some activities to keep them entertained.

This particular day we read a book from the library, Ants In Your Pants and learned some facts about ants. Then we repurposed some egg cartons, paint and pipe cleaners to create our "ants". Addison even got in on the activity and loved it. She had a blast painting the ants (and everything else in sight---thank goodness for washable paint!)

Audrey took her work very seriously.

They were so proud of their project.
