Our aim is to help you include art, nature study and handicrafts in your homeschool. Our kits are designed with children ages 6-12 in mind. Younger children will just need more hands-on help while older children can be more self-directed. You will need to provide some basic arts and crafts supplies to complete the projects in this kit (glue, scissors, etc.)
The nature study portion of this focuses on seeds. Four different kinds of seeds are provided for your child to study and observe grow. A Seed Comparison notebooking page is included as well as one about Seed Dissection and Seed Germination.
Instructions and a piece of chalk are also provided for your child to make his own Sidewalk Garden Scavenger Hunt. A laminated card is also provided for you and your child to use on your next nature walk as well.
The art part of this kit focuses on Renoir and Monet. An art print of Renoir's Monet Painting in His Garden at Argenteuil is included as well as a notebooking page focusing on this artwork and one focusing on the similarities between Renoir and Monet. An index card is also included for your child to make a viewfinder to aid in his study of their Renoir's art print. An extra art print (prints will vary) is also included for your child to study using his viewfinder.
