Muffin Tin Monday ~ Unit study on Apples and Peanuts
Top Row: Cyan's strawberry Applesauce, toast with Alex's peanut butter, string cheese (trying to balance the meal).
Bottom Row: Apple cider (homemade), watermelon (first from the west coast), celery with Alex's peanut butter.
Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth this week was Make Your Own Theme Week! As with all things for us, we made it into a big fat homeschool lesson! This morning the kids woke up to notes for school that said that we were going to make peanut butter and applesauce! The kids were really excited and finished their morning chores quickly, wanting to move on to the 'fun school stuff'. :)
I had gotten books on both George Washington Carver (the 'inventor' of peanut butter) and Johnny Appleseed, and then a speical treat... the PBS special on Johnny Appleseed with Shelly Duval, Martin Short, and Molly Ringwald. Cyan and Alex made everything themselves with me standing their giving direction (I like to take over, so this was a challenge for me too).
