House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

An Unschooling Moment

My 8-yr-old did these flags on the computer yesterday. She started with different country flags then asked for an atlas of the United States. She had the atlas on her lap and was doing them state by state.

These are the first 12. They look so much better up close (click on the picture above to get a better image). She paid so much attention to the fine detail in each flag.

She had just finished #25 when the second half of them was accidently deleted. I do hope she recovers and can complete them after the holidays.

    Cay, what program or site did your dd use to make this flags? This is really neat! Everytime I read about your 8yo dd, I wish ours could meet! She sounds so much like my 8 yo dd! Courtney

    Ah, you have a Drama Queen too, huh? LOL

    She made it on our old computer. All I know is she goes to the Paint Studio in WordPerfect...if that helps any. : )

    Thanks for commenting.
