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! He can munch on an entire package in one go. Even baby N has been loving them! Of course, this has meant, we needed to do some [...]

Something Y and I don't do nearly enough of is exploring art and artists. Now that the 12 months of Montessori theme is fine arts, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do a small artist study. Y really loves to paint so teaching him specifically about a painting technique seemed like a fun [...]

Snowman craft

It has been cold here lately. As in freezing. Or rather below freezing. It's cozy inside - heat turned up, sweaters on, and tea sipping in progress.

Today I am sharing my second post for the 2015 Paintathon! With the seasons getting ready to change, and fall colours just starting to make their appearance on the leaves here, I wanted to set up a fun invitation to explore warm colours in our painting.  I created a simple tree printable for Y to explore.
