How to make memory pens for all your family adventures

Memory pens are a great way to keep track of all your family’s adventures and are super easy to make.  A friend, Mrs. Ann, that lives in a travel trailer and will be going full-time very soon (so exciting) actually gave me this idea.  What I love about this idea is they take up very little space, they are inexpensive ($1 -$10 each), not heavy (a huge concern in an RV), you can make them Continue reading

Unschool Zoo science and around the world

Reid Park Zoo was small but had many animals throughout the zoo.  It was fun seeing live animals after spending the day at the Sonora Desert Museum. We enjoyed reading the signs about each animal and I enjoy quizzing the girls about certain facts to see if they remember from the last zoo.

I bought a bunch of the fun duck tape at AC Moore on sale a couple of days ago. We Continue reading

Unschool learn even more science

The girls took turns finding the pieces and building on the ship. I will be so happy when this cool pirate ship is done. We learned even more science by watching Beakman’s World. It was a movie we got from the library. So Continue reading

Home scientist Badge

We have been working on our home science badge. The best part about Unschooling is it allows us to have a whole day of nothing but science. We picked out five experiments that we thought we would try. Some of the experiments we very successful and others I think we need to try again.  Follow along with us as we try to learn from our failures. Dancing Peppers First, we made pepper dance, the girls Continue reading
