Tuesday - Bees Wax

Brother really loves the Masha and The Bear story. So, in honoring his desire to continue working with the story, we made red bees wax berries and little red birds today. To keep the wax warm enough for use, I put boiling water into a coffee mug, put a saucer on top of the mug, and the wax on top of the saucer. I did have to keep my eye on it so that it wouldn't melt, but this process has been much more successful for us than some of the other things we have tried. Trying to keep the wax warm enough to work with has been so challenging of us that it has really hindered our work with the wax in the past. I am really excited that we have found a process that works for us.

We also followed our regular homeschool rhythm for the rest of the day.
