This is what I remember of the week from 1/24/2011 – 1/30/2011. Mostly they played in the snow and then rested in exhaustion. All classes and things (cub scouts, PE, music, gymnastics, etc.) were canceled.
While they rested, they enjoyed a wide variety of Nintendo DS games. The Boy concentrated on his chess game and worked towards his Chess pin for cub scouts. The Girl did art and painting games and music games.
I started teaching The Boy simple tunes like “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” on the keyboard.
The Girl read a book about art and was so enamoured of Pointilism, that she made several pictures using the technique. The Boy learned about perspective.
The Boy’s friend sent a neat image of Kirby that you could cut out and fold into a cube. From there we researched Platonic and Archemedian solids and made them out of paper.
The Boy also bought a small plant from Target with his allowance, and planted it. He opened and followed the directions to cook a canister of crossants.
I’m not sure what else we did. Chased the baby a lot, I think.
