I am the living water....
The boys got these Powerful Plants Dragon's Tongue and Spinach seeds packages in their Easter baskets. We planted them today as our handcraft for school. Then we went to the website on the bean package and downloaded the free app. When you hold your device's camera over the seed package the character on the front comes alive! and tells you all about planting your bean, its history, and ideas on how to use your future harvest. My kids thought it was the coolest thing!
After watching the spinach man, we had to check out a Popeye cartoon. It featured Hercules, who we heard about in The Heroes book which we just finished for school. And Hercules smelled garlic to increase his strength, and we are growing garlic for the first time in our garden this year too!! We also had on today's reading schedule the Gifts chapter from Parables of Nature in which the garden seedlings have a little dispute and ponder life's meanings. It was a fun loop of Divine intervention today that I did not plan for. I have not preread any of our school books so far so I really love it when this kind of thing happens effortlessly!
Talking dragons, cartoons, gardening and good stories. A fun school day indeed!
