The Family Bramble

Our Bible reading last week focused on Abraham and his family.

No fancy art projects or plastic boats, but we have been working on family trees. Which look more like family shrubs with all sorts of spiny burrs sticking out the side.....

The Agents are the ovals; parents, aunts and uncles each get a rectangle; cousins are represented by circles; and grandparents lord over the page in their roomy triangles.

Agent 002 had a great time cutting out pictures of relatives. Agent 004 loved gluing them into place. The activity was a little over F's level, but was a good experience for her nonetheless, if only to get them talking about what "family" is.
