Here’s our entry for the #craftthezoo endangered animals this week.🐯 I love tigers, I think they’re magnificent creatures so when we started learning about them we realised that most tiger species are on the endangered list. In the wild, they face poaching and habitat loss. They are forced to compete for space with dense and often growing human populations. On the plus side, tiger numbers are on the rise. At least 3,890 tigers remain in the wild, but more work is needed to protect this species that’s still vulnerable to extinction.💕 . Our tiger is made from paper plate, with a few fern leaves for his stripes, paint, black oil pastel for outline and googley eyes. Swipe to see how we did it.🐯 . . . . . #paperplatecrafts #natureinspired #inspiredbynature #getcrafty #naturecrafts #letsgetcrafty #artsncrafts #raisingcreativekids #naturekids #kidsandnature #preschoolactivities #toddleractivities #wildschooling #adventurekids #handsonlearning #learningthroughplay #learningthroughart #learningthroughnature #earlyyearseducation #montessoriinspired #invitationtocreate #getcreative #creativekids #learningatheart #creativemom #playathome #kidscrafts

Dying Dianthus I used to be anti gifted flowers. They just die, I said. I trained my husband so well, that I have to by own flowers now. And I love them. So much. I love how resilient they are, how they always reach for the sun. And they die, yes, so gracefully. But then they bloom again ... as sensory tools, potion ingredients, science projects, bath accessories, art embellishments, collage materials...need I go on? Oh yeah, and paint brushes, like we explored today at @theinccoworking playschool. Dianthus (mini carnations) are inexpensive, last forever, don't stink on the way out, and maintain their shape/ structure. So gift some dianthus today. #earlylearning #cardboardschoolhouse #multiageclassroom #invitationtocreate #sensory #finemotorskills #steamactivities #kidsactivities #preschoolactivities #toddleractivities #preschoolathome #learningthroughplay #playmatters #natureplay #reggioemiliaapproach #reggioinspired #flowers #theinccommunity #letsmakeamess #makeamesswithscience

• FOAM SHAPE FUN • What you need: 1) Pack of multicolored foam from craft store 2) Spray bottle with water 3) A window (if you have kids it’s already dirty. NBD.) • • Months ago I bought a pack of colored #foam sheets from @hobbylobby, sat down one night in front of the tv and (freehand) cut out a variety of #shapes (holidays, rainbows, potato head pieces, Disney, etc). We’ve used them enough times I can officially say it was worth it (about 4 times is my threshold here 😂). Spray the window and add shapes. They stick! Polly (3.5) loves to mix and match the pieces and is building hand strength with the spray bottle. This kid’s imagination is off the charts, so it was entertainment for the fam with her wild stories! Extra credit: foam sheets float in water. Use them in the bathtub to do some sink/float challenges with other toys or as boats.

What's inside a Pumpkin? "Seeds!"....today we used the cardboard pumpkins we decorated last week to expand our knowledge and make this pumpkin craft and look more closely at the pumpkin seeds we are growing on our window (see previous posts). . . #familydaycareaustralia #familydaycare #familydaycareqld #karensdaycare #childrensartwork #childdirected #artwork #artwithchildren #collage #invitationtocreate #childsart #daycare #homeeducator #eylf #earlychildhoodeducation #earlyyearslearning #earlychildhoodunplugged #seedsexploration #pumpkinseeds #growingseeds #pumpkins

An invitation to CREATE FREELY! . . I've always wanted him to do more art & craft works - for motorskills, unleash that creativity that's in all children & instill mindfulness. He's never shown keenness & I didn't want to shove it down his throat. I've decided to have him go on a self-led mode instead. . . D responded well to enrolment & ownership. Hence, I've decided to help him create a mobile art & craft supplies trolley to ENROL him to create at any point in time freely, & having the supplies be easily accessible (he doesn't know what supplies I have & where I stored them). . I'd wanted to reduce the stuff around the house. But now.... Oh well, I reckon the learning environment should be flexible enough to cater to the current needs. 😜 . So now D's pumped because he could finally have a trolley like mummy's, except it's a different colour. . . He chose the colour, put the trolley together with his dad & got the shelves organised on his own - OWNERSHIP! . . I've also put up an upcycle basket for him to put in anything that he thinks could be used for craft creation. . . Now we're all set to go on a creative journey! Let's hope this works out... 😂😂 . . . #thehomeschoolerpreneur #artsupplies #craftsupplies #mobileart #foamsheets #pompoms #straws #pipecleaners #chenille #crayola #micador #washitapes #woodenletters #dinosaurs #letscreate #becreative #ikea #trolley #invitationtocreate #letsgetcreative

I have been willing to do this #diy #toy but wasn't able to find marbles. Today got lucky and found a bag of #marble at #target #bullseyesplayground for a dollar. He was so excited to see it but after 5 or 6 marbles he's over it.

As people pay their homage to Karl Lagerfeld the last few days, this quote really spoke to me. • Often we go through life allowing life to happen to us rather than CREATING a life that we love! This is such a beautiful reminder that when we have big dreams and take intentional action, we really can invent our own future. • So my question for you is: what are you creating right now? Drop it in the comments so we can support you!👇🏻💫 • There are no limits to what you can create!! ❤️ • 📸: @karllagerfeld

Robots 🤖! Today we started a robot inquiry which is going to be awesome! One of the centers we set out was this invitation to create a playdough robot 🤖 #invitationtocreate #playdoughinvitation #robotinquiry #inquirybasedlearning #kindergarten

Turning blobs into bugs 🐜🦟🐝 My Mr-almost-4 used to be a prolific mini maker. Now you’ve got to hustle hard and REALLY WIN HIM OVER to get him to the #creativetable. 🎲 We blobbed some paint onto paper. We rolled a dice to determine how many legs or antennae or eyes we would draw. We drew. We used our imaginations. We chatted. He created for 35 minutes. Win! 🐜🦟🐝 @startcreativestudio is our Queen Bee guest judge over on @get.creative.with with the theme of bugs.

The art hutch remains a hit here, both as a place to easily access our art materials but also as a place to display our creations! Here are some of the bark paintings we did - now to decide what to do with them! We toyed around with the idea of creating a wall hanging with them and Miss 6 seems to really like that idea so we will see how we go. Being so sentimental, I find ‘moving artworks along’ one of the hardest things to do as a parent! I’ve read that some people take photos of their child’s work before binning it, which seems like a reasonable suggestion but I still find it hard to part with nonetheless. So does Miss 6, who seems to have inherited some of her mama’s “keep it alllll” mentality. Feel free to hit me up with any other suggestions!

I made some gingerbread playdough today. I love how both my kids still love playdough. 👩‍🍳 It’s so easy to make homemade playdough and it lasts for ages in an airtight container. 👩‍🍳 2 cups plain flour 1 cup salt 2 cups water 2 tbsp Sunflower oil 2 tsp cream of tartar 2 tsp ground ginger 1 tsp nutmeg 👩‍🍳 1. Add all the ingredients to a large non-stick saucepan. 2. Stir. 3. Heat over a low heat, stirring continuously. 4. The mixture will start to pull away from the sides of the saucepan to form a dough. When it does this tip it out and knead it. 5. I provided gingerbread men cutters, gems, foam shapes, googly eyes & buttons. 👩‍🍳

Button Color Sort. I’m going to try and do at least one activity a week that’s planned specifically for Kylo (14mo). He’s currently loving putting things into containers, so I set this up as an intro to color sorting. Ezra (3yo) wanted to do the activity with him and is a pro at color sorting. To extend the activity for Ezra I had him count how many buttons we had for each color afterwards. Kylo enjoyed putting all the buttons in the containers. I directed him to each color, but sometimes he happily put the buttons in any container. He also loved shaking and stacking the containers afterwards. ⏹🔼⏺ Materials: •Toss & Go bowls from @target •Xacto knife •Large buttons (link in bio - @amazon storefront - math category) ⏹🔼⏺ Skills: •Fine Motor •Color Recognition •Shape Recognition •One to One Correspondence

I would love to hear from all of you about what you’re looking for in #looseparts sets. Are you looking for themed sets? Sets with huge pieces? Sets that are all wood? Sets that are only natural materials? Sets with unique/interesting items? Sets full of color (think grapat)? I need to make some inventory orders and I have decision paralysis. HELP!!!!

Have you tried @melissaanddougtoys reusable sticker pads? We were fairly skeptical but bought a set at our local nature museum a few months ago. We now have about 10 different scenes and stickers ready to go and H adores them. He’s working away on this right now which is allowing me a few precious moments to clean up some of our messes! • • • • • • • • • • #homeschool #totschool #totschooling #totschoolathome #preschool #preschoolathome #homeschooling #wildandfree #totschoolactivities #invitationtoplay #invitationtocreate #montessori #montessoriathome #montessoritoddler #montessorikids #reggioemiliaapproach #reggioemilia #reggioinspired #reggio #childhoodunplugged #sahm #momlife #momlifeisthebestlife #dinosaur #letthembelittle #letthechildrenplay #secularhomeschool #reusablestickers

SHAVING FOAM MARBLING | If you’re thinking of having a go at some messy art, shaving foam marbling has got to be one of the best options. The process is fun and more than a little bit magical but at the same time it’s fairly easy to contain and clean up. Plus, the swirly, rainbow coloured results are mesmerising. I tried this one with a group of kids ages 5 to 13 during the My Little Makes Summer Camp last year and they all LOVED IT! I have to say I’m a little bit addicted myself! The process is really easy. Simply squirt shaving foam into a tray and spread out with a stick or your fingers so that you have an even surface. Add drops of liquid watercolours (I use Ecoline), in a range of colours and swirl around a bit. Place a piece of card on the surface of the foam and gently press down before carefully peeling away. Pop the card down on a flat surface and use a ruler to scrape away the foam and reveal lots of colourful swirls. You can use the marbled papers for notecards, cut them into shapes to make a banner or simply stash them away to use for collages etc at a later date. Do have a go and let me know how you get on. Each step of the process is also in my stories but just shout if you need some help. XX

When you started with feather brushes but really it more fun just to tip the #paint out 🤣

STAINED GLASS CUT + STICK A few weeks ago when I was brainstorming what to use in my playdough love bug kits, specifically for wings, I came up with using translucent plastic dividers. And they were perfect!! . Fast forward to this week and wanting to explore this material some more, I found in my browsing the interwebs that @theartfulparent had already discovered this material...way back in 2012! On her blog, she has an amazing tutorial for stained glass art! If you don't already follow Jean, she's one of my favorites and SO brilliant when it comes to art & kids, so hop on over and check out her books as well!📘🖌️ . Plastic dividers can be upcycled from old binders if you have them, of course, or you can grab some for around $.47 a pack. My little ones could easily cut these sheets with their kid scissors. I taped small squares of contact paper up on our window, adhesive side out, for them to stick their shapes on. My 4 year old was methodical in her approach, cutting specific shapes she envisioned to make a scene. My toddler (20m) much preferred the cutting process over any other aspect of our project, and we decided to all work together to fill up the second contact sheet. 👩‍👧‍👧 . Playing with light generates some great discoveries and conversations! Overlapping the transparent shapes creates new colors, allowing children to naturally make those connections through play and experimentation♥️ . So excited to integrate this material into more art and play! I'm linking up Jean's great tutorial in my bio- definitely adaptable for a wide range of ages!😍 . . . #processart #stainedglass #scissorpractice #scissorskills #prek #homeschool #preschoolactivities #homeschoolpreschool #toddleractivities #finemotorskills #openendedplay #littlemakers #artforkids #playmatters #invitationtocreate

Stained Glass Window Biscuits! It’s sunshine week at #the12weeksofwinter, and we’re throwing back to my childhood with these fantastic biscuits. M had the best time making them and is delighted by the way the light shines through their windows when she holds them up to our real ones. They’re really fun for children to make because there’s loads of cookie cutter action and sweet unwrapping. We used a recipe from @bbcgoodfood and made a cinnamon biscuit dough because we’d run out of mixed spice. M did all the pouring and spooning, and quite a lot of the mixing, cut out biscuits with cookie cutters and then stamped holes out of each. She made a special E version for her sister 😍 (on swipe). She unwrapped some boiled sweets and carefully placed one inside the centre of every biscuit to melt in the oven. She loved seeing the way the sweets had turned into stained glass windows when they came out.

Posted @withrepost • @inqalabinary Whose #space is it, anyway? #visionandvalues #letstalk This space, first and foremost, is for me. It is for me to put forward my opinions, thoughts, ideas and feelings. All of those are grounded in a value system that is #fatpositive , #sexpositive , and #inclusive ; inclusivity pertaining to gender, sexuality, bodies of all abilities and shapes, caste, class, race and religion. A value system that is firmly committed to continued learning, affirming the humanity of myself and others and speaking up against oppression, mine and anybody else's. Speech and commentary that clearly goes against those values will not be entertained in this space. Period. I will not engage with hateful people and simply delete their comments before blocking them. Secondly, this space is for those who need succour and solidarity (including myself). It is for people who need to hear fat positive ideas and see a #fat person live unapologetically because they are grappling with issues pertaining to their own #bodyimage , or because it's just tough out there. Thirdly, it is for people who are working to undo their own internalised fat phobia. Lastly, it is for people who might have just come into contact with fat positivity and are looking to learn about what that entails. These are still people, however, who are listening, and respectful of the experiences and emotions of fat folks. In that order. I want this space to be one that is nurturing and grounded in kindness. One where we practice #compassion for oneself and for the other. One where we find #empathy for those struggling under the weight of #fatoppression just like us, coping in whatever ways they can whether we agree with those methods or not. One where we work to remember that the enemy is the culture of #fathate and social systems that prop up this #oppression , not individuals who are victims to it. One where we give people the benefit of the doubt and receive them with grace and charity. One where we feel comfortable speaking up and sharing our thoughts and feelings. One where we hold each other in #kindness . I invite you to build this space with me. #invitationtocreate

#kindergarten is creeping closer and closer! This is one of my favorite #math activities for #kids preparing for #kindergarten.⠀ 🤩⠀ Grab some plastic bricks in a few colors and encourage the kids to follow the patterns you create! Then, they can create their own patterns!⠀ 🤩⠀ For this ready-to-go pattern printable, download the #kindergartenreadinesshandbook at the link in our bio. It's #free!

A simple activity with Miss I today 😍 - She keeps finding this word and picture puzzle and wants to do it. So I sat down with her (as per normal) and helped her out with it by using the wooden letters from another puzzle. I used these to spell the word she had to look for to match the picture. I also concentrated on the first letter of the word to help her grasp the letter better with what to look for. We managed to do three before the little one woke up. 😍😍 - #playbasedlearning #playmatters #reggioinspired #invitationtoplay #openendedplay #playislearning #playinspired #learningthroughplay #creativeplay #sensoryplay #playathomemumny #childleadplay #childhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood #montessorikids #reggiokids #invitationtoplay #invitationtoexplore #invitationtocreate #invitationtolearn #letthembelittle #letthemplay

An invitation to create! I love this! The jars don’t look quite as pristine as that now but they are still the same and still spark amazing creations. I also find if I add something to the mix, it’s immediately detected and aids in assisting beautiful imaginations 🦋 . . . . . . #invitationtocreate #kidsyogaandart #kidsart

🍃Lots of rain today so we spent the afternoon doing lots of arts and crafts but most of our projects are not finished yet 🤣 so sharing a simple this leaf bracelet activity. All you need are some leaves, paper string or any string really but I find the paper string is a little stiff which makes it perfect to thread through the leaves and a small twig to make the holes. Once you’ve got enough leave on your string, turn them into a bracelet. 😊 A perfect little outdoor activity 😍 . . . . . #natureinspired #natureplay #outdoorplay #naturecrafts #sustainablecrafts #forestschool #handsonactivities #kidscrafts101 #artsncrafts #busytoddler #keepthembusy #naturekids #kidslovenature #wildschooling #simplecraft #simpleactivity #playmatters #finemotor #finemotorskills #finemotorskill #playbasedlearning #invitationtocreate #invitationtoplay #kidsandnature #looseparts #loosepartsplay #earlyyearsoutdoors #earlyyearseducation #montessoriinspired

I’ve had this #invitationtocreate set up for a couple of days - just tin foil with our Little Brian paint sticks, as I’ve seen lots of Insta inspiration with this kind of thing. But, honestly, the kiddos are Just Not Interested! 🤷‍♀️ My eldest made a couple of marks, and was interested to see that they dried v quickly, but she always chooses her trusty felt pens to draw with at the mo - I think they allow her to draw more precisely what’s in her head, which is what’s she’s interested in right now. I’ll wait a while and give this another go ... 🎨
