Welcome To China

Today finished up our week lesson on the fiber silk. The day started with the usual meditation, breakfast , and clean up. Then I called the Little’s to circle and we sang just our morning songs and said our prayer. Today was the day for Miss Sky to recite Ecclesiastes 3 : 1-8. She did great like there was nothing to it. With no main lesson we jumped right into today’s activities. Silk dyeing with Kool-Aid.

I use the instructions found here http://stashjunkiecrochetblog.blogspot.com/2007/08/kool-aid-dying-playsilks-tutorial.html Miss Sky dyed her own silk and thought it was so cool how the silk picks up all the color leaving the water white.

While the silk was still wet The Little’s decorated theirs with watercolor paints.

While the silks dried  Miss Sky read Welcome To China by Caryn Jenner and I read The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen. http://www.popularchildrenstories.com/stories/Children-Stories-The-Emperors-New-Clothes-0101.htm We finished our stories Day of the Dragon King and Little Pear and Friends yesterday along with Miss Sky making a page in her MLB on shelter’s in China. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24734949@N04/4312203341/ We took a break for lunch making fried rice and egg rolls with fortune cookies for dessert courtesy of La Choy. We ended the day testing our hand at some calligraphy

and Chinese.


Zaijian pengyou and a happy weekend to all.
