Sometimes on Saturdays, Sadie and I end up doing school work. It's never regular weekday-style school work like grammar and math.
On the weekends, when Mae is having therapy and Patch is napping, we catch up on any fun projects from Sadie's history book that we thought sounded interesting, but that we hadn't gotten a chance to try (each unit study has a variety of projects at the end to pick choose from).
Sadie had been waiting for this one for weeks. She could hardly wait to start the unit study on ancient Egypt because she desperately wanted to make a chicken mummy.
Today was finally the day... and so we began the process, which will continue over the next month or so. Here are the pictures that I snapped in between glove changes:

baking powder and spices.
After we'd finished our chicken mummifying for the day we headed out to the front yard for fun with sidewalk chalk, which I'm pretty sure at five years old can count as art for the day!
Can't wait to see what the chicken looks like !!!ReplyDelete
You are brave. When we studied mummification, a few years ago, I did not have the stomach for the chicken mummy. We mummified a carrot instead. ;) I hope you post photos of the final mummy.ReplyDelete
