After cleaning the animals, Morrison wanted to put them back in the water but was concerned about getting them oily again. So he tried cleaning the water out with paper towels and coffee filters. That was super frustrating for him so I followed his lead and helped him build our own water filter. He was able to clean some but not all of the water. An important lesson on how the ocean will never be the same after something so devastating. #stem #stemkids #preschoolstem #earlychildhoodeducation #savetheoceans #waterpollution #earthday #preschoolactivities #homeschool #montessori #montessoritoddler #childledlearning #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #invitationtoplay #playmatters #toddlerscience #thisishowwehomeschool #littlelearners #problemsolving #getcreativewith #waterplay #sensorybin #sensoryplay @get.creative.with
Werifesteria (v.) to wander longingly through the forest in search of mystery ๐Ÿƒ โœจ An Old English word, it could not resonate with me anymore ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ โœจ ๐Ÿƒ After hours of stitching, I have finally completed our forest log. Jude spied it before his nap & wanted to play with it.

Reposted from @activelittles -  3 SIMPLE ACTIVITIES YOU CAN TRY AT HOME RIGHT NOW . . I love a good quick and easy homemade kids activity for my littles! Here are 3 simple ideas you can probably try at home - right now! . . First Activity: MODERN PEDALS ๐ŸŒธ use construction paper to cut out circle shapes. Then add dot stickers around each of the colored circles using 1-5 counting around the edges. These form pedals :) ๐ŸŒผ Your child will use a hold puncher to punch each dot sticker while counting aloud. This is a perfect #finemotor activity. If your child finds it hard to use a hole puncher, they can just count them. Then write the number down! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! ๐Ÿ˜„ . . Second Activity: MAZES ๐ŸŒธ use colored sharpies, markers, crayons.. trace different mazes on a blank sheet of paper ๐ŸŒผ Your child will use dot stickers to color match, count, skip count. You can create many different activities with these 3 items: paper, pen and dot stickers! . . Third Activity: TRACE AND COUNT ๐ŸŒธ Write numbers on the dot stickers. Add those dot stickers to a white sheet of paper or poster board. ๐ŸŒผ Your child will trace and count each dot sticker! . . I hope you enjoyed this simple easy setup you can probably try at home right now! What activities are you trying?! Please leave me a comment. I'd love to learn! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’• . . #kidscraft #kidscrafts101 #crafts #crafty #kidsactivites #playmatters #kidsart #montessori #creativekids #familyfun #preschool #prek #sensoryplay #invitationtoplay #diy #playbasedlearning #earlylearning #toddlerfun #playideas #playathome #earlychildhood #everydayplayhacks #toddler #toddlerlife #actividades #homeschool #aprenderjugando #childhoodunplugged #kbnmoms
Such a simple and cute Earth craft from @theresourcefulmama !๐ŸŒŽ . He colored a paper plate blue (water). Once it dried, he added little squares of green tissue paper (land) and accordion arms and legs. To make the face, we added googly eyes and I drew on the mouth.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ . #totschool #earthweek #earthcraft #funforkids #kidscrafts101 #playideas  #invitationtoplay #kidart #toddlercrafts #creativekids #toddlerlife #toddleractivities #toddlermomlife #toddlerart #toddlersofinstagram #craftingwithkids #littleartists #creativetoddler
๐Ÿฎ ALFOIL FARM ANIMALS ๐Ÿ‘ . .  This is an activity we have done in the past but since Easter has been she seems to be a lot quicker at it! (Possibly hoping for chocolate inside? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) . . Such an easy and engaging activity! You can add what ever animals, shapes, letters- anything really! You simply wrap whatever you choose to use in some alfoil and I just pop them into a bowl or basket and when Cooper discovers them she begins to unwrap to see what’s inside! As she unwraps we use our communication skills to talk about what she finds, and we make the sounds of the animals. Today we used wooden farm Animals which are Coopers favourites at the moment. As she unwraps each surprise she uses her fine motor skills and in the end we practised our categorising by putting the foil in one bowl and animals in another to pick away. . . . . Tip: pop the alfoil into a zip lock bag when finished and use for art activities later! The small pieces are great for adding too collages. . . . . #lifeaswades #sensory  #wadetoplay #playbasedlearning #childhoodunplugged #invitationtoplay #provocation #learningthroughplay #explore #discover #creativeminds #mum #daughter #education #educator #vygotsky #montessori #18months

โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸƒIt’s a public holiday here today for ANZAC day so we needed something to keep our 4 year old busy and happy while we get some things done. I quickly put together this playdough invitation with some leftover beetroot playdough we have. It’s still super soft and I haven’t even been keeping it in the fridge! The beautiful wooden platter was a treasure I’ve been searching in opp shops for for ages, I found it at the @millmarkets in Daylesford on our little getaway! I also got a pineapple one! The exquisite lotus pod was from @educationalexperience when they had their 50% off sale! I found the little tea set at a $2 shop in the fairy garden section and the wooden stamps are from @ogkyo in Ocean Grove. I originally bought them for card making but they are perfect for playdough stamping. Swipe across to see what our girl is getting up to with the setup. Currently entertaining the one year old with the Grapat coins and rings, a box, a bowl and a mug stand too! • • • • • #playathome #playdoughkit #playdough #playdoughideas #invitationtoplay #tagfromtheheart #pantryplayideas #learningthroughplay #myplayfullearner #play4thesenses #sensoryplay #toddlerfun #toddlerplay #toddlerplayideas #playtrayideas #playtray #trayplay #smallworldplay #smallworld #playideas #mumlife  #mumideas #playinspo #playinspiration  #sensoryactivity

Ten for Me is one of my all time favorite math literature books! I used it in first grade because it focuses on all the ways to make ten. It’s also loaded with tons of facts about butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹ For Connor who is almost 3, I setup this roll the dice and add the butterflies into net activity from our Bugs and Butterflies Unit! . . . . #readaloud #booksfordays #booksforkids #bookishplay #books #libraryfinds  #kidslit #childrensbooks #earlyreaders #picturebooks #booksforkids #homeschoolmom #teachersfollowteachers #teachermom #raisingreaders #bookstagram #preschoolteacher #totschool #earlyyearsideas #learningthroughplay #invitationtoplay  #montessoriathome #openendplay #homeschoolpreschool

•Anzac Day• In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place: and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.  We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.  Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. . . . We will remember them . . . @honeybeetoys ๐Ÿ not only sell toys they sell learning tools that can be used in such a huge variety of ways. Pictured here is a young boy handing a wounded soldier a poppy. To acknowledge that while some leave never to return, those that do return are never the same. Teaching even the youngest of children that their service is remembered and honoured . .

Remember the egg carton activity 18 posts ago? I used one egg carton for two activities and now I levelled it up to three by flipping it around and using the other side! The layout of the egg carton makes it a perfect tray to introduce counting to 30 and skip counting in 5 (notice the numbers at the end of each row of 5). The latter will be a useful concept in preparation to learn to read the clock. . . This is a simple and low prep activity for 3yo and 5yo. I first introduced it in our sensory bin play and now isolated it to table work. You can also add a pair of chopsticks and/or pincer for the little ones to practice on their fine motor skills and work on their hand muscles. [โœ… Tiffany]

You are the only one holding you back. โ €โ € That saying honestly used to drive me crazy. I knew I had big dreams and I certainly didn’t want to be the one holding myself back but I didn’t really understand how to shift that. โ €โ € I now help people earn some freedom and gain power back in their lives and have a ton of fun doing it! โ €โ € Becoming the best most alive and radiant version of yourself takes some work, some time and development and it’s so worth it! โ €โ € Most people if you ask them, want some version of more time or more money so that they can do things like spend more time with their families, help others, travel the world, etc. โ €โ € All of these are things that would definitely make me feel more radiant and alive! You too? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ โ €โ € What flavor of freedom would you need to create in your life to increase your radiance and vitality as a human being? โ €โ € What does this bring up for you?Think to yourself (or share below... I won’t argue ๐Ÿ˜‰)
-Primary Color Graph- We started our morning with a primary color graphing activity. ••• The setup took me 2 minutes.  The kids gathered the supplies as a way to get them moving and engaged. And they graphed as they went which made it way less intimidating. ••• Our conversations are really where we made this activity count. Rea counted the number of objects in each category. Then she compared (red had the fewest and blue and yellow tied) and my girl likes everything equal so she went out to hunt for more red items to even up the score. ••• This activity was a big ol’ win to start our day. ••• #sandboxacademy #momlife #learningthroughplay #dailyparenting #kidsactivities #playmatters #invitationtoplay #earlylearning #toddleractivities #preschool #totschool #prek #homeschool #kindergarten  #homeschooling #earlychildhoodeducation #nannylife #dadlife #homeschoolingideas
During our digital detox, I was looking for ideas to keep my kids occupied and happy. My sister-in-law inspired me to write some activities down on popsicle sticks and have the boys pull one out when they say they're bored. Genius! It's such a simple way to empower your kids and provide them with opportunities for independent play. ๐Ÿงฉ๐Ÿ“šโฃ โฃ Get more resources on how to encourage a playful environment at home via the link in bio! #learningthroughplay #childhoodunplugged #invitationtoplay #playbasedlearning

A new favorite board game too good to not share! What Am I? by @petitcollage has you asking questions to guess what object is on your glasses.

We are gearing up to the end of our human body study.  Here is a little home made toy I made for my boy yesterday to learn about tendons and how our hands move. It’s an instructional video, in case anyone is interested in making their own.

Pasta threading board ๐Ÿ . . .  I got my toddler an animal threading set from Kmart but he found it too tricky. Then I saw this brilliant pasta threading board at @play_at_home_mummy and quickly made one this morning while the boys were eating breakfast! I already had some coloured pasta so all I did was hot glued it to a piece of cardboard. A simple DIY to encourage left to right progression and fine motor practise.

Trains! Theo is obsessed! At first he didn’t want to let me use any of his tracks but once he saw what I built he was pretty happy and spent the rest of the afternoon here! He enjoyed walking around the table pushing different trains around, testing them out going down the ramp and moving the people and houses around.  I turned a tub upside down on the flisat table, an idea I got from @zaras_play_tribe a while ago, used playdough blobs to keep the track in place and added a few houses and tunnels. Took about 5 minutes but lasted the whole afternoon!!! . . . . #thelittleslearn #thomasthetankengine #smallworldplay #preparedenvironment #invitationtoplay #woodentoys #openendedtoys #openendedplay #woodentrains #trainset #toddleractivity #toddlerplay #playislearning #imaginativeplay #creativeplay #playbasedlearning #play #flisat #playathome

Hi! I’m Chelsey, I’m a mom to 4 kids. I have 4 voices. Each one is different depending on which child I’m talking too. ๐Ÿ˜‚. All my children have such differences, that I feel like learning 4 personalities is like running a marathon sometimes. It’s exhausting! Sometimes I have to use that sweet voice to talk them off the edge of insanity (temper), sometimes it’s firm so they don’t run in the street, others it’s acting silly and using crazy voices to embarrass them. Whatever voice I’m using I just hope they grow up knowing they had a mama who loved them!๐Ÿ’• How many voices do you have?

Invitation to Hammer ๐Ÿ”จ . The face says it all! 2 yr old baby sis really enjoyed poking small sticks into the styrofoam and then hammering them in. . Literally one of the simplest set ups to do, but she was over the moon to be allowed to use the hammer so she was engaged for a long time.

Good morning all! Thanks to all of you waiting on a tuff tray for your patience. The last update I received from my supplier was that they are due to arrive on Aussie soil at the end of the month and then they usually take a couple of days to reach me. Once they have arrived they will be shipped out in daily batches according to order of purchase. I will let you know if any delays arise over the next week or two - obviously I have no control over transport delays and this is why I stress in the product description that we cannot guarantee a delivery date - because these trays come all the way from the UK and can and do often get delayed in transit. I hope you love your trays when they arrive! I’d like to think they’re worth the wait! Much love, Suze. Xx  Oh and to people waiting on our @mirustoys preorder - the wonderful Suba has nearly finished our order ready for shipping! Exciting times! Xx  Thanks for the lovely photo of your tuff tray in action, @zaras_play_tribe ๐Ÿ˜˜

Young children thrive on routine. Sometimes their world must feel like it is full of surprises and things they don’t understand. That is why routine and knowing what to expect next are so important. These things can bring security and comfort and make these daily transitions so much easier.  At Eden Prairie Montessori we know the end of the day can eventually be a smooth transition time if we follow a consistent routine for your child!  https://bit.ly/2uXkcs8  Photo via Psyche Central.com
Allowing children to play outdoors all year round offers them a rich, tangible, meaningful experience of nature and the seasons. It develops their understanding of how things happen and why things work, allowing them hands-on experience of natural processes.  Along with Maria Montessori, we at Sandwich Montessori School believe that playing outdoors is really important! Get to know more about our school here --->www.sandwichmontessori.org
As we observe Earth Day today, let us remind our children to love the environment and take care of Mother Earth.๐ŸŒŽ
