There is a great map of the trip the toy boat takes in the back of the book, which we photocopied and glued in our homeschool journal as well. We made arrows and wrote on the map about the parts we read so far. Then this evening at the park we collected sticks, and came home to make our own Paddle to the Sea. Tomorrow we are going to stop by the creek and see how they float. I can't wait!
Also very exciting is this beautiful soup we created today. My friend couldn't use this big bag of frozen organic peas, so she gave it to us. I honestly had no idea what to do with them, but after giving it some thought, this raw creamy pea soup was born, and it was delightful! Very healthy, and simple to make too. We all enjoyed it very much.
