This is the other half of the livingroom/library. These books are all available for the homeschooled kids to borrow. All of the boxes are recent donations that need some shelving space. I need more shelves! This picture is where the toddlers usually hang out. Everything is kids friendly and nothing is off limits. We also have a full functioning kitchen where the painting easel is and some storage for arts and crafts. I forgot to take pictures of the kitchen.
Lucy and Linda brought crafts to make Stars of David today to celebrate Christmukkah. We used 6 popsicle sticks to make 2 triangles, painted them blue, then decorated with lots of glitter and Christmas Trees. I'm talking lots of glitter! This is Leslie in the left of the picture. She was due yesterday ( but still came to The Meetinghouse today). We are all anxiously awaiting the birth of her fifth baby!
Then Linda explained to all the kids how to play the dreidel game. The kids got chocolate coins (and I can't remember the proper name for them) and candy canes as prizes. All the kids were able to take home a dreidel and directions for playing since the dreidel is in Hebrew.
And Soleil and Colleen . The bigger kids often help the little ones with projects we may be doing...and sometimes they don't.
