The Olympic Logo is one of the four major symbols of the Olympic games, along with the medals, touch and mascots. I printed out all of the previous Olympic logos and we made a timeline of the previous Olympic games from them, adding the year and the venue. Using our atlas we looked up where each of the countries were and with our flags of the world sticker book.
Otherwise know as the P&G 1930’s housewife challenge. I along with other bloggers have been set the challenge to try a day in the life of a 1930’s family. We decided to take this on and use it as a learning tool for the boys.
Cleaning in the 1930’s
I was supplied with some white vinegar, a spray bottle, lemon, bicarb, household soap and cloths. I have to say that I already have all of this in my cleaning cupboard and use it all and have taken to buying white vinegar by the 5 litres from the cash and carry. So I did not find this part of the challenge too hard, except the fact that I missed my washing up liquid and my dishwasher. The hardest part was boiling the hot water to clean everything.
