Almost caught up! A couple days late, here is the week in review for the girls! This week, our primary focus was on ancient things–pyramids, fossils, dinosaurs, cave paintings, etc.
Monkey was working with the beads to make the pyramid.

Fingerpainting, cave style. We crumpled brown paper to resemble uneven cave walls, and then Bug used her finger to paint a design in red paint. Before she did, we looked at pictures of cave paintings in Jedi's history book.
Monkey will.not.fingerpaint. So, she was happy that I had left a brush on the easel for her.
Bug *loves* fingerpainting though. 🙂 She wanted extra stuff to paint.
