Celebrating Labor Day
* Interview older family members and ask what type of work their parents and grandparents did
* Create a "good work" sign for the hardest working person you know
*Bake homemade bread and reread The Little Red Hen
* Read some stories and discuss who was working hard, responsible, etc
* Talk about what types of careers that the kids would be interested in ( Austen has already stated he wants to be a shopper man, aka: cashier, because it would be the easiest job to push food down the belt and hand people receipts. oh boy!)
* Prepare a family meal together and work at preparing, setting the table, and clearing the table together
* Watch a Thomas the Train movie and discuss who was hardworking and who was not in the movie
* Build a train track and work hard together to accomplish this task
* Discuss what , " Many hands makes light works" means
* Finally, maybe I'll even buy my staple gun so I can work hard and finish a project that's been sitting in my living room now for a month!
Happy Labor Day to all the hardworking men and women out there!
