Things are a bit quiet in here of late (and will continue to be) since I am having a market stall at the Piccadilly market in Geelong on the 29th of this month:
I am concentrating all of my efforts on my market stall presentation this time around as I feel it is lacking a little. Since I need to display as much product as I can on a table 1.8 metres long, I want to make sure that I am utilising the space as best I can.
Today we screen printed the letters for a bunting which will hang across the front of the table and I am hoping that we will be able to sew it together tomorrow:
I am fortunate enough to be able to do these kind of business activities around the kids. I simply set Corben up at the table with me (since he is the one most interested in what I am doing) and give him an activity to do. At the moment, he is totally into making pictures with the pieces from the board game Blokus:
Since sequencing is such an important thing to teach your kids, I spend a bit of time talking about what I am doing and why I am doing it. Once he can tell me the order things happen in I let him help with some of the steps, like taping off the screen:
Sometimes I try and trick him by doing things out of order but he ALWAYS picks me up on it!
