Now that she delivered her thank you notes to me I feel a little bad about my last post. She even wrote one to me and her dad. Sorry Boo.
Anyway, I had an opportunity to prove that my hoarding habits aren’t horrible. In fact, I supplied everything that The Teenager needed to do her science project from minature studio. Everything. It was fun too. Unfortunately, she has a super mean teacher that only picks on her. This however, inspired her to a really good job.
The project was to demonstrate Newton’s Laws with a playground design, and everything had to work.
I happened to have one piece of foam board, but it had a crazy silver pattern on it. So I offered it to her to use the blank side. Not my daughter, no she wanted to go big, and decided it was a playground in winter. K. let’s do it.
craft sticks large and small
paint and brush
lots of wire
small flag pole
metal for swings
vellum for flag
that’s it I think.
The pictures don’t do it justice.
oops! Ken had an accident.
Here is a picture of the swings made from a vintage belt, craft sticks and paper clips.
next is the abacus demonstrating something
Here is the slide, and a bit of the see saw on the thread spool. oh and a pond, not sure what that demonstrates.
I helped with the flag. The pulley actually works. She painted the snowflake,
There is the rolling barrel and the tube to crawl through, and a little bit of the coil climby thing, and snow.
She did good. Maybe that teacher will be a little nicer now, and I am officially the best mom to have around when she has assignments like this.
see hoarding isn’t horrible.
