Rock Art

A mosaic is artwork made with small pieces of stone, glass, or tile. The pieces are arranged to form pictures and patterns. Collect some colorful rocks and find a flat place to arrange them into your own mosaic.


Try this Estonian-inspired treat! Be sure to get an adult’s help.

3/4 cup warm milk

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 tablespoon sugar

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoons active yeast

2 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup softened butter

1/3 cup cinnamon sugar

  1. Whisk the milk, butter, sugar, egg yolk, and yeast in a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes.

  2. Stir the flour and salt into the milk mixture.

  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for an hour.

  4. Roll the dough into a rectangle about 18 x 12 inches (46 x 30 cm). Spread the softened butter evenly over the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

  5. Roll dough up lengthwise, to make a log.

  6. Cut the log in half lengthwise, leaving one end uncut.

  7. Braid the two pieces together, keeping the cut edges on the outside. Pinch the ends together to make a wreath.

  8. Bake at 350°F (175°C) on a greased cookie sheet for 30–35 minutes, or until golden brown.
