Here are a couple of pictures from our last scout meeting.  The kids were working on their nutrition badge.  They all were able to grind their own wheat, start some sprouts, and make butter.  For our snack we ate the rainbow.  :)  The next week we went on a maple sugar tour to finish up the badge.

In the kitchen

K and I have been doing lots of projects in the kitchen.  We've been making lots of butter.  Here is some above that we molded into a pineapple.  My mom also brought as a grain grinder so we've been grinding out wheat before we bake. It makes things taste great.

We made some really great graham crackers and it was so easy.  It took me forever to find a recipe that actually called for graham flour.  Most recipies use whole wheat.  The crackers tasted great!

Play time

 K is making an eggshell picture here.
 We received a big box full a rock collection from my mom.  She found them at a garage sale.  kalan had a great time cleaning and organizing the rocks. 
 We started making a new habitat.  The desert.  So far we've only felted a tan sweater and cut out the desert.  Here is a camel checking out his new home.  This was part of a huge road we made covering our whole living room.
 More of the road.  It lead to the barn, doll house, arctic, pond, and gnome home.

Window star making

Here are a couple of my recent window stars.  I've gone a little window star crazy and made a whole ton.  I'm thinking I"ll use them for L's birthday party.  The top picture is K making window stars.  He loves making them.  :)
