fun with art

Two of the children built a "boat" from a card board box, filled it with comfortable pillows, blankets, and other needed items. They then sat down with our Art Fraud Detective and spent several hours being art detective's. This was in the late afternoon, long after my scheduled "school time". A favorite quote from my Charlotte Mason Study Guide is "Next duty is to nourish the child daily with loving, right, and noble ideas. The child having once received the idea will assimilate it in his own way, and work it into the fabric of his life...Nourish him with ideas which may bear fruit in his life." Like giving nutritional food to their body, I nourish the children's' minds, spirits, and thoughts with carefully chosen books, toys, etc. (OK, George of the Jungle is just for fun....)
