Nature Girl

T2 loves nature and wanted to show other kids how cool nature is by making some videos. Here are two she made this evening about the frog and toad eggs in the pond behind out house. I had never seen toad eggs before.

Sponge dolls by T2

T2 loves making sponge dolls and she wanted to make a video so other kids could see how easy and fun they are to make.

Fun with money, addition and making change

This morning while T1 was still in teenage dreamland T2 and I got started on an activity. I cut out pictures of groceries and their prices from our weekly flyers. T2 sorted them into categories and we made a catalog. We filled our toy cash register with Canadian play money and I saved some for me and I would tell T2 what I wanted to buy and she would find it in the catalog, enter the price and tell me my total. Then I would pay and we would figure out the change she owed me. It was a great learning activity. T2 was amazed how quickly groceries add up!
