Stars and Cards and Science

I made a couple more star blocks. I don’t feel inspired enough by them to make a whole quilt, so I have decided to make a table runner. Here they are sewn together ready to quilt (with apologies for the wonky photo!):

Now all I have to do is decide how to quilt them…

Meanwhile, we have continued with the ICAD challenge though I haven’t exactly been brimming over with ideas!

The boys are showing signs of being chemistry crazy with their latest cards:

Waif has been especially getting in to his study of the elements, and has produced a fabulous lapbook to display what he has learned:

I am heartened that the boys are enjoying learning about science as I think I was totally put off it by the way we studied it at school and have only started to take an interest again in recent years. There’s so much to learn, and so many amazing websites, videos and (shock! horror!) even BOOKS to help us do it 🙂

  1. I really love the bright colours of those blocks! And that looks like just my sort of learning. Makes me wish I could replicate it in the classroom…
