Apologies for the late post, but I had a fun-filled weekend and didn’t manage to update the blog until now.
Hooray! We made it to week #4 of our poetry reading and craft challenge! For the last two weeks I decided to choose longer poems and projects geared towards older kids. Of course I still expect you to read the poems to the smaller children and work on memorization 🙂
Below is the poem we’ll be working on memorizing this week. In honor of Earth Day coming up on Wednesday I chose a poem about planting trees. I hope it resonates with you and your little ones.

For this project you’ll need:
- 1 stick
- scrap ribbon (I used brown and green scraps)
- glue gun and glue sticks
- lighter (to prevent the ends of the ribbon from fraying)
