Our Homeschool Alphabet: B (part 2)

(continued from Our Homeschool Alphabet: B (part1))

B is for...


...beanbag block bowling. This is a new favorite game. We stacked her beading blocks and then she pushed a beanbag across the floor to the blocks. The bean bag would knock down the blocks, just like a bowling ball would knock down pins.

....balloon tricks. First, we gave Arin a balloon and a straight pin. We let her put the pin into the balloon. Pop! (check out her stunned look!). Then, we criss-crossed tape (in a 'x') and put the tape on the balloon. Then, Andy put the pin into the center of the balloon. It was able to go in without popping the ballon.

...balancing and

attempting to balance!

...bananas. They make great snacks and are fun to use as phones. They are also great for science/counting. Every banana has three equal sections.

...brown. Ella is wearing her new brown hat that I made for her with the help of my mother-in-law. Even I am homeschooled :)

...bandanas. They make great aprons, hats & blindfolds.

...bridges. Arin has an obsession for bridges. She always tells us when we are on one or on an overpass or she sees a bridge.

Great stuff! It looks like Arin has had lots of fun. O loves balloons, so we'll have to try the balloon activity :)
