Here’s our home schooling calendar sticker legend – many ideas inspired by family, friends and the Internet! Going to try and do the core curriculum ones on every weekday, with days off on weekends / holidays.
Made this picture today with Dan’s play dough 🙂
Kirigami means cutting paper in Japanese (kiri = cut, gami = paper).
It’s a fun and easy activity to do with children and you use them for decoration or glue them on to paper or card, etc.
You can also use the cut out pieces for something!
Sometimes I like to make one where the kirigami is based on, for example, my whole life and each cut represents an event or relationship. Then the folded part represents your life in time and the opened pattern represents your life in eternity. Other ideas to try are things like just one day, a relationship or an idea!
I made this lantern for Dan’s room with some origami paper, masking tape, pipe cleaners and ribbon.
The bulb is one that doesn’t get hot so it is safe!
Dan and I made a town out of chalk (from the 100 yen shop) outside our flat, kept him busy for hours!
I made Dan some food from origami paper for his kitchen. Dan also likes bringing out this food when we eat and putting it on the table.
I made a kitchen for Dan. We got the parts from Shimachu in Nakano. The main frames are cardboard boxes, with a real tap, shiny drawer knobs and a metal bowl for the sink. Dan calls it ‘SHIN’.
