Homeschool Highlights - Week of November 29, 2009
Last week for example, the kids were making a paper chain to decorate the church. However, they didn't glue or tape the chain together, like I always had as a child. They had pre-cut, pre-pasted pieces that you had to lick to stick together. Ugh, that's a no-no for celiac! Envelope glue contains wheat, so I'm assuming these did to. That was easy enough. I wet a paper towel and Shayla was able to join in the fun.
The same day they were supposed to design something perfect using playdough. Shayla loves playdough, we use it all the time, BUT, again, the playdough you buy in the store or make at home contains flour, flour is wheat. Not safe for celiac. I don't have a problem with Shayla playing with regular playdough. We use it at home, because she is at the age where she does not typically put her hands in her mouth. And I tend to remind her once. After clean up we immediately go and wash her hands.
Back to this week!
