I'm such a realist. I need to start doing fun crafts and activities with my kids, like making a flag out of construction paper or something. But I generally just talk to them about stuff, which I guess helps teach them, but doesn't develop their creativity.
Anyway, about this week's theme: We talked about the flag, and what the stars and stripes mean. E had no idea that at one time there were only 13 states, or colonies. So that was a fun history lesson too. We also talked a little about the upcoming elections, and who might be the next president of the United States of America (not to be confused with the president of the church, which I used to always mix up when I was little). We also looked at a map of the world, and of the United States, and talked about how there are different laws in different countries. Maybe since we still have a few days of this week left, and therefore a few days left with this theme, I will try to do something creative too. Hmmm, paints sound tolerable right now. I'm so bad. Anyone want to come help me do projects with my kids???
Oh, and I came across this today concerning a three year old and politics that made me laugh out loud. I don't laugh out loud very often while reading something. Thanks to Mommie Daze for a good laugh.
