Strings And Sealing Wax And Other Fancy Stuff

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

When I was a child and I heard the song, 'Puff the Magic Dragon', I used to wonder what sealing wax was. I thought that it must be some sort of wax on ceilings, what else could it be? In my very young age, that made perfect sense, now just what in the world was it ACTUALLY? Although I learned long ago what it was, I never had reason to use it............ until now! Along with our medieval unit that we are doing with our homeschool group, we discussed the ways they communicated. The kids each made a feather quill and wrote a letter on parchment paper and sealed them up with ribbon and sealing wax. It was very fun and it makes a letter look VERY IMPORTANT!
