Paper Popsicle Memory Game

posted on: Tuesday, August 23, 2011

We sure love popsicles! I just bookmarked this DIY Paper Popsicle Memory Game by Eat Drink Chick for a future homeschooling game to do with Baby Maria and Enzo. The wheels are turning in my head and I think I'll decorate with prints of Brazilian fruits so not only will my kids learn the concept of remembering but will also learn the name of different local fruits in Bahia.

On September 1st we move to Itacare, Bahia for a year. We are thrilled to move to somewhere so beautiful and so warm with an abundance of tropical fruits. Enzo was going to start school this Fall if we were in the States but because the school year is different here in Brazil he probably won't get to go to school until February. So we decided to homeschool. At first I was freaked out at the idea of homeschooling but now I'm actually pretty excited. For one thing Enzo is eager to learn (yes, I'm counting my blessings!) and for another it will give me more time to spend with my kids doing something besides just beach bumming all day long.

In the next couple of weeks our family will be going through some exciting changes and so will this blog. I'm going to start a new series called Kitchen Schooling. Since I parent at my best when I'm in the kitchen I figured I'll probably teach at my best when I'm in the kitchen as well, using concepts I'm comfortable with, like popsicles for example :) Also, my blog template will be going through some major transformations thanks to Ana from Liven Designs and Erin Jane from Jane Reaction. Kitchen Corners will become a food+Design blog. I'll still post recipes and stories about the fam. In addition I'll share some of my favorite products and concepts, DIY and art installations, beautiful things that revolve around food. And as always I appreciate your feedback, so when the time comes to install the new template do let me know what you think.

Also, if you have any homeschooling tips or sites that you like or even fun projects you run across on the web please share them with me. I want to do a good job at this homeschooling thing. Good thing it's only Kindergarten. I figured if at the end of the day all I've done is cooking projects with him he'll still be o.k right?!
