I’m so excited about this project. This may very well be the best idea I’ve had in our almost two years of homeschooling.
Let me explain…My eldest daughter used to enjoy writing, photography, and cooking; but for some reason she seemed to lose interest in all those things. So when I’d hear her complaining (every single morning) how much she didn’t like breakfast and that there was “nothing to eat” – it gave me an idea…maybe that would make a great school project. During the week she could research (ie Google) a breakfast recipe that appealed to her and on Sunday she could make it for our family, then the following week she could write about it. So that’s how her blog “Candy’s On The Case” was born. This covers so many different school subjects like English, Food Technology, Computers, and Photography. Not bad, eh? The biggest plus? She is now enjoying writing, photography, and cooking again…and we get a gourmet breakfast every Sunday – amazing, or what?! The goal is to do this for a year. Surely by the end of the year she would have discovered some breakfast foods that she likes.
Here are few of her delicious breakfasts so far:
I can’t wait to
see taste what else she comes up with.
