This week’s Item of the Week: Carpet Sample!
Have you had carpet replaced or been in the market for new carpet soon? Do you have several swatches of carpet sample patches laying around? Are they lots of fun to look at, hold, stroke fingertips through…just because they’re sitting there, in the way, needing to be tossed in the trash? Well, before you toss it, try adding this square fuzz into your home school for a change!
There are a few things you can do with your carpet sample just before throwing it away for good. IT can become the subject of focus for writing assignments, art activities, even mathematic equations (if math is YOUR thing). Here's how we’ve used carpet samples in our schooling.
So, if you’re looking for something to do with that swatch of carpet (one last time), I hope these ideas helped spark other ideas!
Be sure to tell us how you've used carpet samples in your household or homeschool. Friend and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram and YouTube for more engaging activities & ideas. Enjoy! :)
