The children have wanted quill pens for the longest time. Ever since watching Bilbo Baggins write "Concerning hobbits" on the Lord of the Rings, the children have wanted to use a feather pen! On Chris and my trip to Ohio, we found some inexpensively. The children were so excited when they received them and couldn't wait to use them!
First, daddy had to cut the feathers in a particular way...
All ready to go...
Then it was time to make the ink (which you can find a recipe for HERE)...
One of the benefits of having an older sister...she'll lift you up high so you can see what's going on!
Time to write!
Even daddy takes a turn!
Making quill pens and homemade ink is a fun project to do with your children! My three were surprised at how difficult it was to write neatly with them. *Home*schooling can definitely be fun!
Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied,
