The theme for this week’s Unplug your Kids’ challenge was Glass. We did lots of things throughout the week, including washing windows (ha!) and using glass marbles as part of a treasure hunt/fishing game. We also made suncatchers, which Jaylene insisted be in the form of her new heros, the SuperTwins.  An illustration from the book was copied and then colored in with Amos Glass Deco pens.  Now it looks like she’s flying over the fields outside our home.

There was also a trip to the Tittot Glass Museum to see how they blow glass into bowls, vases and art sculptures.

I’ve tried to embed some videos, but if they don’t show up, I’ve added a Flickr link to each one. Warning, the furnaces have a nasty buzz to them, so you might want to turn down/off your sound before you watch.

Does anyone know how to properly embed Flickr videos?
