Is a looming science fair project keeping you up at night? Has the teacher sent home an “informational packet” that requires your child to bring back a completed project? Does the teacher’s kid win the school fair every year anyway?
Use the holiday break to get started on that project. See my posts on Take a hike: Get a project done! Now is the perfect time of year as many of leaves have fallen off trees, so items like bird’s nests, vines, and trash will be easier to identify in photos OR find some left over pumpkins (or anything else with seeds) and follow the instructions on Carve a pumpkin: Get a project done!
Don’t forget to take pictures, so you will have them for making the display board later.
