Fun Friday~

When I taught K-2, we always celebrated Friday with FUN.
 {Fun Friday: Book, Art, Cooking, Science, and Play!}.
Today I thought it would be the perfect way to end a week long study of plants... SO~
We read and retold The Tiny Seed~
Enjoyed a little playdough play and these great ABC mats~
Watercolored beautiful flowers like Eric Carle~

'Cooked' a delicious snack while they dried~

Planted seeds on a sponge to watch them grow~
Added texture and beauty to our flowers~

It was a beautiful day in the Ankerich garden with these precious bloomers~
 Even though we have had sickness all week, 
it has been a blessing to have my children home learning together and I think EK just might be on the mend today.

Genesis 1:29
Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."


  1. What a fabulous Friday! You find the most creative things to do! That snack looks almost too cute to eat!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. You have so many fun "school" ideas. How fun. These little ones are so lucky to have you for their life and in school. What a dear family you are.

  3. Your little ones are so lucky to have you as their mother. You really amaze me at how much you do. You're like the Energizer bunny. ;-) So happy to hear EK is starting to feel better. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Girl, You've got it going on with your homeschooling. I always enjoyed the fun stuff with the younger ones. Now that mine are older, I feel like we are just keeping up with the requirements. Hoping to add some fun back when we start with KONOS in September. Planning to do some fun preschool stuff with Jolie in the fall, but it's just more fun with a couple of more kiddos to join the fun. Maybe I can find some preschool buds between now and then. LOL

  5. You are SO ready for homeschooling!!! <3

  6. Such cute activities!!! Looks like a lot of fun. :)

  7. LOVE your homeschool posts. Keep 'em coming, girl, because I'll be copying. That OK? Were planning to do plants soon! Fun!
