Weather {Poppins Book Nook}

Welcome to the start of the Poppins Book Nook for 2015.  This year The Enchanted Homeschooling Mom has a wonderful spoonful of reading lined up for us.

This months theme for the Poppins Book Nook is Weather which I feel is such an appropriate way to start the year as our weather is changing.  We are moving from summer to autumn, the days are growing shorter by the minute and the nights are lengthening.  The trees are changing and preparing for their winter sleep and many other animals are migrating to warmer climates.

Books We Used

Light Painting {HSMJ}

 In my life this week…
  • I have been introduced to washi tape ... I am really enjoying using this product to personalise my planner / diary.  I've also discovered that you can purchase it on eBay for very good pricing. Can you recommend any resources for washi tape ?
  • If you are able please will you help a friend of mine ?  Both her and her husband have fractured their legs.  You can read more about their needs on this Go Fund Me page.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Upcycled Toilet Roll Minions {Virtual Fridge}

For a few years now I've been collecting pins on Pinterest for upcycled toilet roll crafts. Nathaniel spent the afternoon with my mother earlier this week and discovered an upcycled Toilet Roll pin and spent the afternoon creating these minions.  Super easy craft that he completed all by himself.

Featured This Week
I'm loving all the creativity shared in each weeks link up be sure to check out what others are doing for some super fun and easy crafts to do with you families.

 Loved this super easy Flower Stamping with cups tutorial from Sparkling Buds
