We actually did manage some origami for our Homeschooling Art Day. I helped Donna and Ivy learn how to fold a paper crane while Bastian helped me fold one. The kids did a few very simple things like cat faces and the like. Then they ran off to dress up like pirates, build Lego, and listen to more of Aleks' terrible pop song obsession. The mamas sat and drank tea. I never get to use my tea pot, so it was a welcome opportunity.
Donna made Japanese rice balls, which were lovely and filling. Aleks tried some plain seaweed, but did not like it. Bastian ate a rice ball (or maybe even part of several rice balls), seaweed included, though I think it was difficult for him to shred with his baby teeth.
All in all, it was a success. We'll be working on Valentine's on Tuesday this week.
