Newspaper End Roll

Posted under Uncategorized by Melissa on Monday 25 February 2008


Natalie & Bobby learned about the Mayans, Aztecs, and Incas last month.  These are Inca ponchos.  And the reason the heading says Newspaper End Roll is these ponchos are made from this roll of paper.  I highly recommend calling your local newspaper and asking if you can buy an end roll.  Ours was only $3 and it’s more paper than we know what to do with.  We lay it out over our kitchen table for the kids to color all over.  (It’s also great to use for kids’ birthday parties as  a table cloth where kids can doodle while they wait….)


  1. How fun. Man, you guys have great ideas and fun. I need to expand my horizons. How do you learn about all these resources? I didn’t even know what an end roll was. Seriously, can you make a list of little known resources that have helped you out? That would be great because I don’t even know where to start.

  2. Thanks for these ideas! Since our move we have been having some struggles with getting back into our routine and remembering discipline. I’m excited about this rewards board. Melissa, I so wish I could come to your house and just observe you for a week. You are amazing.

  3. You two really give me way too much credit. But thank you–there’s nothing like a pat on the back (especially when homeschooling gets tough).
    I like the idea of little known resources. However, off the top of my head…the newspaper end roll is the only one I can think of right now. It’s all about keeping your eyes and ears open to things you see and hear that might work for you.
