Virtual Refrigerator: The Hobbit

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop is co-hosted by A Glimpse of Our LifeAngels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges! You may also follow the Virtual Refrigerator's group Pinterest board. If you'd like to join us, just ask and one of the Fridge hosts can send you an invite. Continue to share your posts on the link-up each week, and on the Pinterest board!
We are working on a literature study of J.R.R.Tolkien's classic, The Hobbit. Not only is Kennady loving the book (and the movie!) but she likes that the study includes something to appeal to her creative bent. As she reads, she is recording the journey on a map (which I don't doubt she will embellish and color later)...

and she wrote this secret message using Anglo-Saxon runes. She certainly treated these as an art form.

The message in runes went on the bulletin board, along with some other LOTR themed items and quotes.

We'll be sharing a review of the literature study from Moving Beyond the Page in a couple of weeks, so be sure to check back!

Is there a favorite book or movie that has inspired a little artistic creativity in your homeschool recently? Leave a comment and let me know - and share it on the Virtual Fridge too!

You can grab the button above and add it to your post. Add your link here to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts. Please visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!

My daughter recently discovered Tolkien's books. I'll have to share this with her.
