Everyday the boys’ had “Project Time” and building with cardboard boxes was a favorite activity.

Andrew made a chain-of-events machine.  You put a penny in a hole, which pushes a ball a ramp, which goes down the tube and lands in a net, etc.

When we asked Isaac what he made, he said “a cardboard box!”

Andrew is a member of the Young Scientist’s Club and gets science kits in the mail twice a month.  He used project time one day of winter break to work on his fossil kit.

He made plaster-of-paris molds and experimented with both mold and cast fossils.

On Thursday Dave took off of work and we went to an indoor water park.  This was clearly the boys’ favorite “Winter Break” activity.

We had a pretty good winter break…though honestly I am pretty glad the kiddos are back in school. Mama needs some space and some quiet to think her own thoughts for a while. ;)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
