We also used straws and pieces of paper and played a game to see who could suck up the most paper "bugs" as possible. I modified this from another post where you used party blower type things.
We did this goofy thing for the frog unit (when studying the tongue). We put a red blanket on a desk chair that spins, and pretended it was now a tongue. When the tongue was not guarded, mommy came up and spun it around out of control (with the child on it) which led to much dizziness and "calamity....

Hi- due to a lack of milk cows nearby- we improvised. We took two rubber cleaning gloves- the disposable kind- filled it with water, a poked a hole in each. Then my 2 yr old dd, and my 5yr old ds, "milked" the glove over a big pot. We even drew funny cow faces on the gloves- it was a wet mess. But, ...

No way :) My son said how exciting it was and woke me before I was awake, and said "When are we doing MFW?" I am so thankful for this curriculum and am happy to enjoy it with my kids. My son is sin...

Hi all- I'm new to this group and wanted to say hello. MFW seems all I can talk about lately! I started my son in DVDs. It was nice in many ways, but I also saw his frustration at not being able to understand all that was taught. He broke my heart one day unknowingly when he told my husband that mom...
