Magic Monday: Rainbow Crow

Rainbow Crow is one of the most beautiful books featured in our American History program: Indigenous People of North America and Hawai’i. In this Lenape legend, Crow goes to the sun and brings fire back to Earth to save all the animals from a bitter winter. As a go-along for this story, making Rainbow Crow as scratch art felt like the perfect pairing.

Quilting a Map of the United States

I’m a crafty mom. Not sneaky. I mean, I really like crafts. And sometimes, my love of crafts and homeschooling combine to make some interesting choices. I have wanted to make a map quilt to go along with our history studies and I finally got around to it this weekend!
