learning about india...

i love it when the kids think of something that never occurred to me- fiona stuck a craft jewel on her forehead and viola! a bindi!
i gave each of the girls a henna tattoo...
we went to the grocery store to buy the ingredients for our spice cookies. each of the kids were assigned an ingredient to find... i suggested asking for help and they did!
the recipe called for many different spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and dried mustard so the girls took turns smelling and describing each.
i left the room for about 10 seconds and when i returned this is how fiona looked... busted!
the girls took turns having their hands traced. they noticed that by moving the hand prints around we would have a left and right hand!
we decorated the hands with our henna ink (aka black gel icing) and brought them to underwood for a picnic! 
i think talking about india made everyone miss theo more- they all wanted to write him a letter!
