Shame on us. We didn’t get to this week’s Unplugged Project, thin, in time this week. Halloween / Mystery History costumes have taken precedence. We have a kid-generated idea however, and will try to do it tomorrow after school.
UPDATE: OK, the kid-generated idea was not so successful: braiding pine needles. Braiding pine needles works quite nicely in the spring and summer, but we discovered that they are a bit brittle in the fall and tend to break.
We then tried a disappointing science experiment involving hanging paper clips and a teaspoon off a hanger. I was too busy making dinner to invest much attention to it, and things didn’t work out as planned.
Now the kids have given up and are playing chess. Does chess count as thin? The board is thin right??
Sorry to be a disappointment this week, but as we all know, projects are not perfect all the time!
Hopefully you are more organized than we are this week! Did you join in the thin Unplugged Project this week? If so, then please put the link to your post in Mr. Linky.
If you didn’t participate, but are interested, then please read about how to join in here. I hope we’ll see you next week!
EDITED TO ADD:
In honor of the upcoming U.S. presidential election on Tuesday, November 4th, my oldest daughter suggested that next week’s Unplugged Project theme should be:
I know we have quite a few non-U.S. participants and readers, so please don’t feel that this has to be a U.S. flag, any flag-related project is fine. Or why not be really original and think: “a flag is usually made of cloth, let’s use cloth!” Or “a flag has a pole or stick, let’s use a pole or stick!” How about basing a project on the colors of your flag? Remember, the Unplugged Project theme is only a departure point. Be creative! Nothing is ever “wrong!”
