The boys have been so hard at work on these projects that I just found myself praying all night long that everyone would be healthy and we could make it to the fair. It's always such a fun and educational day that we just did not want to miss it.
We started attending this fair two years ago and we were blown away by all the great projects. (You can read about 2013's fair here and 2014 fair's here).
We had high hopes for today's fair and the boys were equally thrilled to learn that it was the only "school" thing we were going to be doing today.
Luckily we made it to the fair and we had a great time!All of the kids did a great job with their projects. It's always neat to see the way that all the different children approach and report on their topics. Many of them have become such experts and they're more than willing to share stories about other things they learned along the way.
My boys had fun visiting the different countries and trying the different foods. They also had a lot of fun visiting with their friends.
Each child is presented with a passport and they go from table to table adding a stamp or mini picture to their passport and they can try the different foods, make a craft, play a game, or try their hand at different worksheets like crossword puzzles, word searches or coloring pages.
