Thumbprint Easter Eggs for #yellow #babipurchallenge. My 5 YO dipped her thumb on non-toxic yellow paint and stamped on paper, drew the beak, eyes and feet and wrote Happy Easter by herself. It’s so fun 🐣
I keep six honest serving individuals, They taught me all I knew; Their names are What & Why & When & How & Where & Who. And the real question is, are you asking enough questions? @madshivam hit the nail on the head! For #36daysoftype today's challenge was extremely fun :D We decided to go ahead with 'Questions' as we cannot emphasize enough how important the act of asking questions is. And hence in an attempt to capture 'A-Z Elements of Great Education' we knew we had to add questions. #36days_q #storiesofarth
Very happy with our new Way to play set and Grimms bridge from @ikbenmama.nl. Great combination! We will use the Way to Play also in the garden; it's very easy to clean. We hebben de 50 euro shoptegoed van de Grimmschallenge van @ikbenmama.nl gebruikt voor een Grimms brug en er ook gelijk een Way to play set bij gekocht. Super combi! Ook leuk voor in de tuin, want de rubber wegdelen zijn makkelijk afwasbaar. Hier gaat zeker veel mee gespeeld worden! #ibmgrimmschallenge#waytoplay#grimms#grimmsbridge#openendedplay#openendedtoys#toddlerplay#smallworldplay
I call this ‘Please give me just 5 minutes of silence to sort my life out’ 😬 Pea was going mental just as I was trying to put away shopping and get dinner on, so I went to the play cupboard and gave her a choice of something and she chose the pasta. Grabbed some bowls and tongs and finally she wasn’t hanging off my legs asking for ALL THE SNACKS 😂
Reposted from @creativeplayideas - 🌟Experiential learning🌟 We've had lots of fun exploring ball runs made from drainpipes this week (see my earlier post). Mr 13 months loves posting the balls down the tube, watching and waiting for them to pop out at the bottom. I challenged his thinking by offering a second, smaller drainpipe that many of the balls wouldn't fit into 🌟 I recorded Mr 13 months on many occasions, calmly trying to fit the balls into the smaller tube. He would really persist with the challenge, pushing them and pushing them and trying to figure out why they wouldn't go down! 🌟 With experience he began to test the balls in the first tube and if they didn't fit he would put them back in the muffin tin or send them down the larger tube. It was amazing to see him try the green spicky ball in the small tube and then pull it out, as if he remembered it got stuck earlier in the day. He then sent it down the larger tube instead! 🌟 I wanted to share this experience as I feel it highlights the power of documenting experiential learning. I can see my son's thinking develop through the recordings and it's amazing to observe and reflect on such a rich learning experience! 🌟 #infantplay#reggioinfants#explorations#documentation#reggioinspired#sensoryplay#emergentcurriculum#childledlearning#playfulkiwis#kiwiece#nzmum#creativeplay#homeeducation#handsonlearning#openendedplay#playbasedlearning#scienceplay#earlychildhoodeducation#sensorylearning - #regrann
Dandelions...the most beautiful flower to a child. I do love the color yellow and had to pick a few myself. Swipe to see some #bookishplay I have checked out nearly 50 books this week! Annnd I have been to the library 3 times! 😂 Happy Thursday! 💛💛💛
I snuck a few photos in at a shivering cold 7am this morning... before I packed this bowl up for the courier. I’ll have small, large and irregular shaped red gum trinket bowls available to order for Mother’s Day or your little trinket collector next week, along with our new autumn trees, new mushrooms, new baby doll accessories and some new stamps. 🍁 I’m also using these pretty photos as a placeholder for another topic - a really yucky one - shipping costs. I had bad experiences with 2 courier companies back in the early days and since then have used Australia Post for 90% of of our postal orders. I’ve since found another courier that have so far been reliable and reasonably priced, I’ve also finally purchased compostable post bags and we’re now making our own eco wrap. All this combined means I’ve been able to reduce domestic shipping costs, with the biggest saving being for small orders up to 500g. Some orders will however still come via Aus Post for some regional areas, the NT or when I find it more cost effective. When you purchase please consider that most timber products are either heavy or bulky or both. Please also consider that these items are handmade. Right here. In my backyard. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about this and will be adding a page to the website with all the shipping charges listed. 🍁 But for now I’m taking a few well deserved days off to spend with family. The shop will remain open, with any orders placed over Easter going out on Tuesday. 🍁 I wish you all a weekend full of Easter crafts, PVA glue, stories about bilbies and a sneaky hot cross bun. Much love, Carley x
