A few months ago I bought some Magic Mud (natural clay) at the craft store. We worked with it once, but never went back to it. Last week, M. asked if he could play with it during our art time.
He spent over an hour creating with it! He even refused lunch!

I bought this firefly lantern for the boys for our outdoor adventures this summer. When it arrived last week, we tried to out to observe a tent caterpillar. We're planning to stay up late soon (well, late for us- the boys go to bed by seven) to try to catch (then release) some firelfies. I don't think M. has ever seen one!
