Free Wall Art for Montessori Homes Printables

I'm so excited to start finishing up our spaces in our home! For the past two years (well more), we have been so busy with remodeling and doing work like making walls. There has been little time to focus on details. I'm so happy to finally be at a place where I can start buying [...]

Seashell activities

I seem to have back to school on my mind. Summer vacation here literally just started! No, really, summer holiday in the Netherlands begins in middle to late July! The kids here get six weeks off.

Strawberry number finger painting

Whenever I can, I try to combine learning activities with practical, real experiences that my children can relate to. Lately, one of Y's favourite foods has been strawberries!

Strawberry life cycle printables

I love studying plants and life cycles during this time of year! We have a small garden with lots of strawberries, currants, black berries, and well, pretty much every berry ever. And not so small.

Summer Activities for Kids

Wow! I cannot believe that it's summer already! During the summer, I love how the days are long and all of the wonderful extra time for outdoor activities. It can also get a bit overwhelming when we are so busy to really plan. Cooking healthy meals, preparing summer activities (learning activities and fun, family activities) [...]

Kids cleaning set: types of brooms, mops, and hand brooms for kids
