We have been observing the milkweed on many of our nature walks.
Monarchs need the milkweed to lay their eggs?
If you don’t have the milkweed, you don’t have the life cycle.
This weekend, we noticed that the milk weed had burst.
Location: The Brick Works
We collected some empty seed pods. I had picked up some roving wool in assorted colours at the Creativ Festival (there was a vendor who dealt in bulk about 8 oz for $3). I found the project idea here with the instructions here. You can also use peg dolls, like here. We used an assortment of beads, acorns and acorn caps, peg dolls which we had on hand. It was a sensory experience of the girls, they enjoyed the feel of the wool.
Wishing you a great week! Our furnace was condemned by the gas company a few weeks back, the same year our house turned 100. We are very much looking forward to getting a new one tomorrow.
