Willy Wonka/Christmas Party

We finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a few days ago. I try to plan something special at the end of each book that we finish. The end of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory happened to coincide with our last day before Christmas break. So we decided to have a fun day.

We decorated cookies.

Other than history I let Grace have the day off as well and come upstairs to have fund with us.

The littles first filled out a book report form then followed a step by step tutorial to draw Santa. That is the first picture up above. They did an awesome job.

We also watched the original version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to compare to the book. After the movie we did a little hand sewing of snowflake fairies that could be hung as an ornament. I neglected to take a picture of them.
We started our next literature unit this week and it is Black Beauty. The girls are also going to work their way through a horse unit study. The end of Black Beauty will find us going on a field trip to ride horses.
