School Fun

Aren't my students cute!? This is how we homeschool with a baby. By the seat of our pants, with many hands on the baby and lots of patience.

This day we had begun reading a book about a little boy who took his first flying lesson when he was 10. Then i remembered that i had seen this cool paper airplane while i was stumbling around the internet.

The Soda Straw Plane, on this awesome blog called All for the Boys.

this is all you need....a soda straw, some tape, scissors and a 4x6 or 3x5 card.

Cut the card into three strips.

Tape two together into a circle to make one end of the plane and then tape the last piece into another circle to make the opposite end. Tape them onto the straw, putting the straw on the inside of the circle, as straight as you can.

Then fly that plane. It is amazing, and flies worlds better than your traditional paper plane.

The kids had so much fun. And that is how i want every hoemschool day to turn out, in a perfect world. :o)

Your children are beautiful, Leslie! I think we are in such a similar situation. Patience is the key. Your school room is fantastic!
