I've found that there are two types of homeschoolers. By the way I'm fond of sweeping generalizations such as there are two types of people in this world: folks who make broad generalizations and folks who don't. But, that being said, I stand by my claim that homeschoolers can generally be divided into two group, those that homeschool for a religious or political reason and what I like to call "The Crunchy Granola Crowd".
We were definitely part of the Crunchy Granola Crowd. Good thing too because, though I imagine the other group of homeschoolers is pretty crafty, you can only imagine how DIY the granola lovers are.
In culling through drawers and closets this week I've come across many handmade puzzles, games, collages, and what-nots that stand as evidence of my penchant to suggest when studying a particular subject, "Hey let's make something related to that."
Side Note: For those of you who think that that kind of exposure will yield artistic/crafty adults, I'm here to break you hearts. Only one of my girls is interested, albeit very interested, in that. Though they all know how to sew, knit, and make a hand bound book, only my youngest's eyes alight with excitement when I suggest we create something together. Though(addendum to side note) they all want me to make them a quilt for their beds and generally disdain the notion of store-bought bed coverings.
So, today, I thought I'd create a little game for you all to play. A matching game. Remember how fun those were?
I'm going to put up four images from yesterday which included some work and a lot of cleaning, sorting, and packing. I'll number these images 1 to 4.
Then I'll list 4 somewhat cryptic captions, a, b, c, and d. Your task, my bloggy friends, is to match the caption to the picture. If you're so inclined include your guesses in the comments section.
What do you get if you're right? As a former homeschooler I'm obligated to answer like this, " Knowledge is its own reward." :)
Ready? Have fun.
a. R.I.P. refrigerator nest.
b. I see a smiley face in there.
c. Twice in two weeks. Who knew they had so many?
d. Isn't pretty fabric a nice change from pictures of cleaning? (alright, that one's a giveaway)
