We began by reading M is for Magnolia and then Bean used the information she learned to make a notebook page for her United States scrapbook.
Was there really any contest for our Mississippi food? Of course we made Mississippi Mud Pie! We used an easy recipe from food.com and made it even easier by using a pre-made graham cracker crust.
In honor of The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race, we made a hot air balloon mobile using instructions from Sew Homegrown. We didn't paint them like she did... I know the cuteness factor just went down, but this mobile is still hanging in Bean's room, so it's okay.
Our Journey takes us to Illinois next!
