Printables for this week:
This week we talked about being diligent, and practiced not giving up in little ways throughout the week. Our bible character was Jacob, and how he worked diligently for seven years (twice) to earn his bride’s hand. We incorporated some number writing into our bible page this week, too.
Our cooking project was a no-brainer…“Upside Down Cake!” Pineapple Upside-Down Cake to be exact. I used a recipe online, but the cake texture wasn’t my favorite, so I’m not recommending it. It was a very fun one to make with children though. What we did was drizzle some arequipe in the bottom of a pan, then “plop” in the pineapple rings. We put a cherry inside each ring, then split up for the cake making. Miss Peggy and the girls measured out the dry ingredients, while the boys and I measured the wet. Then we put it together and poured it in the pan. I think my plain wacky cake recipe would go great instead, but we’ll have to experiment with that later.
The best part is when you take it out of the oven and get to flip the pan Upside Down! I was surprised that so many of them wanted seconds. It is amazing how much more adventurous children are with food, when they are involved in the preparation. As you can see, we already made a good dent in it before I remembered the photo. hehe
For our Fun Friday activity, we had a great day at Miss Amy’s house. It was supposed to be a bu
bble day, but I couldn’t find the batteries for our bubble machine. (Thankfully, the children didn’t know the difference.) They all piled in the hammock for awhile, then the heat and humidity chased everyone upstairs. While the children played, Miss Amy prepared an U
nch!! We got to actually sit at the table together and enjoy our gourmet chicken, date, and olive dish. Thanks Amy!! Sorry for the point and shoot but had to capture the fun…
