Cornucopia


It’s Thanksgiving in the US next week and that means we are seeing a lot of cornucopias (also called Horn of Plenty) in gifts and decorations. But cornucopias were being used long before anyone had heard about Thanksgiving – the Ancient Greeks were the first we know of who made cornucopias to show off their harvest of food and flowers.

Daffodils


Yay for Spring! Beautiful yellow flowers everywhere – dandelions and daffodils. Although daffodils also come in white and orange and even lime-green and pink! Daffodils bring happiness – and they also bring poison! Make sure you put them in a vase of their own or the sap in their stalk will kill the other flowers.

Dandelions


It’s spring! Dandelions are such a fun happy sign of spring. Not so long ago, people used to want dandelions to grow in their yards! They are useful as food, medicine, and dye for coloring. The name comes from the French and means ‘teeth of the lion’ because the leaves are jagged like a lion’s teeth!

Grocery cart


What do you think Sophie and Sadie are buying at the grocery store!? Did you know that it used to be that when you went to the grocery store you handed your list to a clerk who would put everything together for you. That was when there were 800 items in grocery stores instead of 40,000! In 1916, a Piggly Wiggly in Tennessee was the first grocery store that let people do the shopping themselves.

Secret whisper


What do you think Sadie is telling Sophie?! She’s whispering a secret! When we whisper, we don’t use our vocal cords like we do when we talk – and our vocal cords are what helps us make different sounds and also sing. Try singing in a whisper – it can’t be done! Only one sound comes out when we whisper! Click on the image below, or click here, to open the coloring page, then download, print, and start coloring!
