Home schoolers mini fair

One of the blessing of being part of a homeschoolers social network
is attending the events that are created by the wonderful parents.
Last month we found ourselves at a mini fair
The children were to man the stalls
create the product and sell it
So refreshing watching the little entrepreneurs at work



These had to be my favourite consumables!



Such pretty lolly pop bikkies



Garden produce



Im not sure what happened when you guessed the amount of marbles. Did someone win the jar?



The wrestling arena.....oi vey!



Honey joys, water bombs and bubbles....a child favourite things



Oh i didn't get to taste this





Angie hard at work creating masterpieces



The imagination behind some of the stalls was great!



Boys selling their mother jewellery
(their mothers created jewellery...no diamonds or ruby bargains to be had today)



I think my favourite had to be the experience that my girls had at this fair
It was Sarah's idea to busk as she has been asking to do so for at least a year now
They made such a lovely racket
Thank you to all our lovely homeschooling friends, big and small,
that dropped their coins at their feet
Egos were boosted and their creative hearts content

Hi Melissa, have been wondering where you were and went to send you a message and found out your only blog these days is this one. How are you.

The fete looks fantastic - we had a similar school fete last month although there were some parent orientated talks, sessions etc which was fantastic too.

Also loved your Anatomy home schooling session. There is a google 3D body programme available which is great and Bio Digital Human (google application) which is probably better. Both are free and might be worthwhile having a look at.

Love to hear from you and what you guys have been up too.

Take care, Janine xxx
