The Homeschool Showcase (Formerly The Carnival of Cool Homeschoolers) #16 is up on the Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers Blog. I hope you get some some new ideas from it. Mrs. Jenny Wren of Jenny Wren’s Nest tells — as Kris, the administrator of the Weird, Unsocialized Homschoolers Blog, says — “of her and her daughter’s recent experience making soap, prompted by a kid’s craft show that her daughter enjoys. Jenny gives us a list of ingredients and step-by-step instructions for the project.” Amida at Journey Into Unschooling shows the collages her children made for each letter of the alphabet. Some parents posted on “100 Terrific Sites to Find Primary Source History Documents,” “100 Great Sites to Celebrate Black History Month,” “50 Awe-inspiring, Free, High-Res Collections of Religious Imagery,” and “100 Fascinating Celtic Culture, Language & Lit Blogs.” There are also posts about using a reward system, learning colors, using genealogy to learn history, crafting your own calendar, taking a vacation, humor, and the creativity of children in interpreting your words. I hope it gives you some new ideas!
