Homeschool Group - Sculptures

Several members of our homeschool group attended Sculpture By the Sea so we decided a sculpture class (or sorts) was in order.  The people who went shared their photos of the Sculpture By the Sea exhibits and we looked at different sculptures that some of us had made at home.

Then there was some free time to create sculptures with toys and various craft objects.

Munchkin is quite proud of his design - he created it all on his own!

 Monkey's creation

 One of the mum's brought in her cardboard sculpture and also showed the children how to make flowers using empty plastic water bottles and tissue paper.

Munchkin thinks he is one of the big kids!!

Schooling With Help From Nana

Nana was visiting so I had an extra pair of hands during our school day!!
While Monster worked on his school work the younger boys had their own things to do...

Monkey got busy working on some pre-writing pages that I had as he is keen to learn to write.

With the protection of sitting on Nana's lap, Munchkin was able to try putting the pipe cleaners in the bottle again - this time WITHOUT help from his brothers!

Then, in the afternoon, while Munchkin had his nap, Monster and Monkey has some sensory play time.  I mixed cornflour and shaving cream and let them explore.
