Visiting the Museum - Free Worksheet

I created a simple worksheet to take with you and your little ones on your trip to the museum. This worksheet is great because it's generic enough to work with various types of museums. Currently, we're visiting Spurlock Museum to look at and analyze some ancient art pieces.

I included a writing spot for the Place and Date, Summary of the Visit, Interesting Things Learned, and even a space to draw something about the visit.

I hope you enjoy this worksheet as much as we have!

Weekly Homeschool Planner

I created a weekly homeschool planner, and I'd like to share it with you all! I use this same form with my boys. At the end of each week, I jot down what they need to do for the next week. This keeps all of us on top of things.

Violet the Monkey: Part 1

I'm at it again. I've started a new project. I couldn't help it, though! This cute Monkey Pattern was calling my name, begging to be crafted into existence. I decided to create a purple monkey, and I'm planning on documenting my progress here! :)

I originally stumbled upon this pattern on Pinterest. If you'd like to craft along, visit the pattern here.
