Things we've done recently that could be considered educational:
I told Nat the story of The Little Mermaid this morning, leaving some detail but including the price for her feet and her ascent skyward with the Daughters of the Air at the end.
We watched a horrifying National Geographic video about weird animals, including those baby frogs born through holes in their mothers' skin. I'm still recovering.
We're talked about whales.
We watched combo dubstep/bellydance.
We're read a bunch of books.
We picked some milkweed pods and looked at the sap.
