The butterflies turned out darling, but Princess added a little something prompted by our study of insects currently going on in science (Apologia: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day): a "sucking mouth" or proboscis. She was very proud. I was too.
Is was a fun time and educational time. Definitely a nice homeschooling memory.
From Our School to Yours: Take a bit of time on the first day of each season to talk about it. You don't have to have a party or do a craft, you can just take time to talk and look around. Naturally, a little something (craft, treat, activity) will help the younger ones take notice and remember better.
