The Community Art Project: Taliesin made the top of this. Others quickly added balloons. It makes a lovely addition to our living room ceiling!
Today was so much fun for Taliesin and Nathanael. It was our Valentine's party for A Walk in the Park Unschooling Group. Two other families came to our house (some of our regular attendees at the unschooling events); and we had a fun time. It was not a typical Valentine's party - just so you know. The festivities began with making sack puppets. We then put Valentine sugar and chocolate chip cookies into bake, exchanged Valentine's, and then the kids made water balloons and popped them on a tree out in the backyard (an interesting science experiment, as well, to see which ones were easiest to pop). When the cookies were finished, the kids decorated them with red frosting and Valentine sprinkles. Then we headed down to the family room to eat them while watching Veggie Tales. The kids let me know that this was the best Valentine party they have ever been to. That's what happens when children are allowed to use their imagination!
