U.S. History/Government Resources Review

Disclosure: I was sent these books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

Are you getting ready for a new school year? Looking for some fun resources to help your child(ren) learn about the American Revolution and the United States Constitution? I have the perfect books for you!! First we will look at the book about the forming of the United States--The American Revolution: Experience the Battle for Independence by Judy Dodge Cummings and illustrated by Tom Casteel. 

Fabric Fun! Natural Dye and Tie Die -- Crafty Weekends Fun and Link Party

This week we have been having fun with fabric and dye. Back in 2012, we experimented with sun dyeing wool yarn with various natural items. However Hazel really does not remember any of it and she inherited my wool allergy, so we never did anything with the yarn. I thought it would be fun to dye some cotton fabric and let her try it again. I also bought a tye die kit earlier this summer and have been wanting to let her try it. So this week we did natural sun dyeing and tie dyeing.
