But, back to my post which was about the boys keeping their hands busy.
Most of the time their busy activity of choice is building with Lego. But, since we started using the Christian Kids Explore Physics book for a TOS Crew Review they got the K'nex sets out that we bought the last time we did Physics. The boys love these. We bought them from Timberdoodle.
Check them out Price: $28.50 each
K'nex Intro to Simple Machines: Gears
K'nex Intro to Simple Machines: Wheels, Axles and Inclined Planes
K'nex Intro to Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys
They not only started building with the Simple Machine sets they collected all theirr K'nex from all over. After they built one of the items from the set they wanted to make some stuff with their own K'nex. I made them put the extra set pieces away so they would not get mixed up and then they went to work.
Assorted boy stuff: boat, flying vehicles, a sword, and some unknowns???
So as long as the boys listen, can narrate back about the stories and don't talk to much about there creating and drive me crazy; I let them continue to build during read aloud.
I hope you enjoyed this post,
