I smiled when I read this article. Chick-fil-A is ‘cleaning up’ their food.
My eight year old son can cook.
I hope as a homeschool parent you are not surprised. But it does seem to surprise a lot of people when I tell them that he can cook. I think they think I mean gourmet things like ‘Alton Brown’s Macaroni and Cheese. Don't I wish! I would have a prodigy. But no, those recipes his 11 year old sister cooked when she was 10.

But, I thought I would share this blog post I found that offers free Columbus Day Activites and printables. I am using some of these as busy work for my 6 and 8 year olds. And to also teach them a little history.
