OMG!!! It's been so long!!!

Well, there are no apologies or excuses.... I honestly just took a really long holiday break.... some health issues came up but we are dealing with them.

The boys have had a blast making crystals (jade and diamond).... doing lots of creative art work.... and tonnes of outdoor time. We've had sleepovers and play dates and dad was home for more than two weeks.... that was a real treat for us all.

We are finishing up the Senses part of our Human Body Project. Kind of a mish mash of different projects that I have been meaning to get to.

A lift the flap model.....

Photobucket

Each flap lifts to show the particular sense, eyes, ears, mouth, nose, skin... I still think it is a freaky looking model, but the boys get a kick out of it....

They also did some work on the skin and how hair grows.

Photobucket

Yes, that is a picture of the tongue and tastebuds.... told you it was a mish mash

Photobucket

This is a neat one... it was a bugger to fold and tape but worth it in the end.... it shows how hair (yarn) grows out of the follicles.

Photobucket

Mini slide book.. the boys love these for some reason.... nice and easy I guess. This one covers hair growth, pimples and sweat glands.

I hope to get back in the swing of blogging again.......

Keep giggling.
