My Blue Haven--Simplifying the Bath

"When Wippoorwills call, and evening is nigh, I'll hurry to my Blue Haven (Heaven). . ." "A turn to the right, A little white light, Will lead you to my Blue Haven (Heaven)."

Butterflies and Flowers Collage in a Vase!

Following on from making our Collage Calendar, our group made collages of vases of flowers, mounted onto black card. Some were made into calendars by adding a calendar tab and others were just a bright picture to hang on the wall! Here are some samples of their creations... Even the least artistic memeber of the group will end up with a very pleasing picture - on A4 piece of card - cutting, sticking and enhancing with stickers, buttons, ribbon bows etc Have a go with your groups!

Vintage Painted High Chairs

It's weird how inspiration strikes me sometimes. I was leafing through an old BHG magazine and I noticed a high chair in the background of one of the photos. Then I thought I have two highchairs, I should do something with them! Funny they've been sitting there for quite some time. This is the first one I painted. I chose a nice sunny color to brighten it up since it was so drab. The distressing always brings out the details. It looks more off white in this picture than it does in real life…

* Bird Watching Basket

Another fun new addition to our family room is our new Bird Watching Basket. I was inspired by Mariah Bruehl's Playful Learning Spaces e-class. We have a beautiful dogwood tree right outside our family room window and we have several bird feeders hanging in it. It is a very popular hang out in our backyard for our feathered friends. I set up the basket with several bird guides, a bird whistle, some nice binoculars, and our "Birdsong Identiflyer" machine (that plays birdsongs). I think I'll…

Building a Flashlight and Pipe Building from Montessori at Home!

Preschoolers often enjoy building activities that help with eye-hand coordination along with the concepts right, left, and “right is tight, left is loose.” An activity can be as simple as having a few different sizes of nuts and bolts in a basket for children to put together.
