Few things inspire my kids more than being able to show off their creations. Every time they create something of which they are very proud, they ask me to photograph it and post the pic to my blog.
Working on the Book Arts Bash has shown me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that homeschooling children are incredibly creative.
I thought that a blog carnival dedicated to children's creations would be a perfect way for children to showcase their work.
Do your children love creating with their building toys? Ben's latest craze is building vehicles with his Zoobs.
Or do they, like Shira, love to walk around the neighborhood with camera in hand?
Perhaps they love to cook. Ben made his first ever gluten free, dairy free flat bread the other day.
Shira loves to bake gluten free, dairy free, soy free chocolate chip cookies.
Perhaps your children have been inspired by the Sorted Books Project, like my two have. Notice the sentence the kids made here. Think my political cynicism has rubbed off on them? Please note that this is not meant as a dig to the current president. They took this picture during the primaries.
Enter their poetry, short stories, photographs, pictures, collages, lego creations, just anything that your children have created - please include your child's age and first name.
There are two ways you can enter, write a blog post about your child's creation and then submit to the blog carnival via the Blog Carnival submission form or email the entry to me at shez dot silverberg at gmail dot com and I'll include it into the carnival.
Each carnival, the best entry, as judged by me, will win a book of their choice from Amazon.com (valued up to $8)
