Nature Dome

Several months ago I purchased small cheese dome at Goodwill for a couple of dollars. When I saw it I knew it would be a perfect "nature dome" for the boys. Right now it has a home on this small table in Kal-El's bedroom. It is accompanied by two magnifying glasses (one for each boy) and, for right now at least, a bird book. The idea is to provide a place for the boys to study interesting things that they choose to bring in from outdoors. So far Kal-El has only chosen to bring in these three Blue Jay feathers. I showed him the Blue Jay in our bird book and he asked to keep the book as well. I am repeatedly amazed when he finds the picture of the Blue Jay and shows it to someone in the family to show them where the feathers came from. The Blue Jay is pictured on something like page 600 out of 900 pages but Kal-El finds him nearly every time.


  1. An update, hooray. Glad he likes his treasures. Auntie R

  2. Just wait until he brings in something that starts to smell after a few days LOL!
