I lost my internet connection this week. That’s a total bummer since writing on the blog is a major outlet for me since we’re so new to the area (and I know very few people yet). The kids and I had busy, fun week and I hope to start sharing some of our activities later this weekend. We’ve been working on our timeline unit (I’ll explain more soon, though a large portion of that entails the geologic time line… fossils, dinosaurs and such).
Anyway, back to the title of this post… we’ve been busy making a “trash-o-saurus.” I saw the idea/name somewhere on the web and loved the concept. So now we’re in the process of making our own “trash-o-saurus.” We’ve been fairly true to the name and the only non-rubbish we’ve used are plastic ties and duct tape (oh, and flour!). If this would be fun for you and your kid/s — join us in a week or so when we share our photos by adding a link to your website in the comments area. (I’m not too savy about mr-linky, but might look into doing something like that if others are interested and if there’s not too much of a learning curve on how to set that up.) And to be open and honest — ours is a family project with lots (and lots) of Mom-involvement as you’ll soon see!
Hope someone else finds this idea fun and inspiring (if not now — at some point down the road!!).
