We did some moon phases this morning.
We started each with four cookies, plus one just for eating. :)
But eventually the lad got his made. He didn't have to do all of them since it was a challenge for him to do and we didn't want to run out of cookies. (since we did end up eating some of the worst of them).
We did some science....in that some of the canned goods we'd forgotten about from about...2005... well they had turned on us. So the lad got to see what happens when that occurs. The smell, the appearance, what it does to the lid of the canning jar etc. Then to see that even though the food has gone bad it can still be put to use in our compost bin. The gardens and the worms will appreciate it all.
He had the joy of chasing spiders...and the fun of seeing mom get the heegeebeegees when one landed on her and ....anyways... it was a moment of comic relief for him.
He had the physical exercise of working hard. The mathematical joy of engaging in some organization.
