This week we tried to have a semblance of normal and tackle India with some gusto, but it turned out to be only halfway done. I didn't get to the art that I think the kids would have enjoyed. You can see some fun India crafts at http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/indian_crafts.htm. They had some neat ideas for fused bead crafts and also some Rangoli designs that looked authentic.
We did the regular map and flag work. We prayed for the Hindu people in India. We read some good literature books from the library. One book that we already had was The Story of Little Bibaji. The kids asked to read that one again and again. We also learned a little about Gandhi and Mother Teresa. The boys did a lap/notebook on Tigers too from Homeschool Share. We ended the week with Daddy bringing home Indian food - our first try for most of us. E and Ter and I liked it, but the boys weren't too thrilled and Betty wouldn't even try hers. Bo just threw his food, so we don't know how they would like it, really.
Obviously didn't like the smell. :)
We also played a little Parcheesi, since it is the "Royal Game of India".
E also posed for a photo with her pic of an elephant. I'm sure it's an Asian Elephant. ;)
