Thanksgiving is absolutely my favorite holiday. I love the focus on counting our blessings and the time spent enjoying family without all the commercialism that can so often taint Christmas celebrations.

I hope you're able to take some time to relax over the next couple of weeks and just enjoy your time together. To help you do just that, I'm sharing some fun art ideas the whole family can enjoy as well as lots of ideas for celebrating Thanksgiving in your home and homeschool.


Happy Homeschooling!


Fun with Art

I've run across a few unusual art ideas recently, that my children have really enjoyed. I bet yours will, too. I like these projects because they were enjoyed equally by my 10, 12 and 14 year olds.


For this project, draw an outline of your hand, then draw lines, freehand, across the page, but skip over the outline of your hand. Then, go back and fill in the hand outline with curved arcs. This makes for a neat illusion.

These "tornado worms" are similar in concept. I love that they turn out completely different depending on how you create your arcs or color them in. Visit this site for more examples and click here for detailed instructions.
