🐆 MENAGERIE 🦍 * Little D requested this set up before he fell asleep last night ♥️. He adores this wood boat I found at Goodwill last year and will fill it up with animal friends and drive them around to different locations. I used our @grimmswoodentoys and some blocks to make a cascading walkway up to the top of the boat for his menagerie of wooden @ostheimerwoodentoys@holztiger_uk animal friends. 🌈 * ♥️ Happy Playing ♥️ . . . . . #playbasedlearning#montessoriathome#openendedtoys#sensoryplay#homeschool#earlychildhoodeducation#playideas#playathome#handmade#woodentoys#invitationtoplay#playmatters#learningthroughplay#learnthroughplay#toddlerlife#childhoodunplugged#play#earlylearning#kidsactivities#kids#letthembelittle#letthemplay#toddleractivities#preschool#smallworldplay#earlyyears#toddlerplay#openendedplay#montessori#imaginativeplay

Meet Quinn the gnome! Quinn’s favourite thing to do is swing on his tree swing, which he is doing right now, can you see? Quinn’s brother Owen also likes to swing, but Quinn knows that Owen isn’t nearly as good a swinger as Quinn, even though he says he is. Quinn swings so very high and he doesn’t even lose his balance, although he admits that it’s taken a lot of practice combined with his natural athletic ability. . . . . #learningthroughplay#steinerinspired#waldorftoys#waldorfinspired#smallworldplay#felttoys#gnomes#invitationtoplay#letthembelittle#creativeplay#openendedplay#openendedtoys

Your purchase helps others since we invest a percentage of sales (invested by merka on micro loans through kiva) on micro loans to help give underprivileged and marginalized students the opportunity to attend a vocational training program, university or other higher education institution. #merka Qurbonali's story The man in this photo is Qurbonali. He was born in 1998 into a large family living in Kurgantube, Tajikistan. He is a responsible, cheerful, honest, communicative, and generous person. He graduated from secondary school with excellent grades and passed the entrance examination to university. Recently, Qurbonali has been studying at the Institute of Economics and Finance. He is a second-year-student. He is applying for a 3,500 TJS loan through Kiva's field partner IMON to pay for his tuition. He hopes this loan will help him to successfully finish university and become a professional. Qurbonali is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. He is asking for a loan for the second time with Kiva’s partner IMON. He is thankful to Kiva lenders for their kindness and support. This loan is special because: It allows low-income students to access higher education. https://www.kiva.org/lend/1453967 . . . . . #letthemlearn#openendedplay#playmatters#montessorieducation#playislearning#homeschool#finemotorskills#sensoryplay#kidsactivities#homeschoollife#totschool#preschooler#invitationtoplay#toddleractivities#learnthroughplay#wildandfreechildren#prek#simplychildren#thebloomforum#thepursuitofjoyproject#clickinmoms#preschoolathome

I’ve quickly learned that my kid testing crew knows right away whether a toy is fun and engaging or a dud and this one was a big hit with the kids! These planet-themed spinning tops are a great way to learn through play about our solar system, practice planet sequencing, and improve fine motor skills. I made the spinning tops from clay and maple blanks, turned on a lathe. The spinning tops represent different sizes and weights of the planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Kids can sort them, learn about weight and balance by recording which top needs the biggest twist to begin spinning, and which top spins the longest and fastest. I’m excited to add these to the shop! 📷 by @sandyeverett2 . . . . . #educationaltoys#learningthroughplay#woodturning#spinningtops#solarsystem#planets#planetsequencing#kidslearning#toysofinstagram#invitationtoplay#finemotorskills#giftideas#homeschool#montessoriathome#waldorfinspired#openendedplay#montessori#education#stockingfillers#childdevelopment#woodworker

🌳🏡DIY TREE HOUSE🏡🌳 I did a thing!! I’m probably not the craftiest or best diy’er out there🤷🏼‍♀️ but I like how this little tree house turned out!! And the kids have been loving playing with it! 😊 We did this with hubby on Saturday night, because #saturdaynightplans 💁🏼‍♀️and I pretty much love it! The kids have been putting the nins and the palos in the swing and in the little house, going down the slide.... and my 15 month old has been having fun carrying it around 😅😅 It’s holding up really well!! Paper towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, cardboard box, and hot glue gun! This is our first venture and I’m pretty pleased so we’ll think of more things to do for sure! 💪🏻💪🏻👌🏻👌🏻 . . . #coffeeandspitup#toddler#toddleractivity#toddleracrivities#preschool#homeschool#learningthroughplay#playislearning#playtolearn#imaginativeplay#learnthroughplay#letthemplay#letthembelittle#kids#play#love#learn#mom#momlife#motherhood#woodentoys#freeplay#openendedtoys#openendedplay#invitationtoplay#montessori#craftycardboard

Day 18| Mistake or lesson #Marchmeetthemaker • Going LIVE 🎥 at 4 MST this evening to talk more about this topic... • When I was a teenager I heard about something called the "spirit bead". It is an old Native American tradition that consisted of stringing a flaw into a bead pattern as an act of humility, a way of recognizing the inherent imperfection of humans. It was a way to honor the true perfection of the gods. As a bit of a perfectionist myself this concept was SO freeing to me. I started looking at my mistakes as a way to honor God, the true creator, and as a way to learn my craft better rather than looking at is as a terrible mistake that should be tossed out. I never went as far as adding a mistake on purpose... but I do embrace small flaws in my work now rather than toss them aside... usually things no one else would ever notice. 😉 • Most recently I made a mistake EVERYONE would notice when I tried to cut my first rainbow stacker. I posted it in my stories and called it an "epic fail"... quite a few people reached out through messages and said they thought it looked great and the "flaws" gave it character. So I decided to embrace it, clean it up a little, and now I LOVE the thing! I decided to call it the "Redeemed Rainbow" 😊🌈 • Can you share a time a mistake became a blessing or a good thing? • Join me live later today to talk more about this concept of the "spirit bead" or learning from mistakes. Make sure you tune in! 4pm MST • • • • • #kateandcaboodle#spiritbead#mistakesnotperfection#redeemingmistakes#creativemistakes

Lots of outdoor play today, we’ve come in now as the littles needed naps. I love this area of the garden, it’s completely set up for open ended play & the children play so many different things back here. Today they were collecting “coins” (flat glass type marble things!) & taking them to the bank.

Cloud dough recipe! Another easy peasy recipe. The key to this is the ratio of the flour is to the oil has to be 8:1. Whatever cup size you use, keep it 8:1.

It makes me appreciate those things more and it's interesting to see the end result of what I am making! #29mo#sophieathome#diysensoryplay#diyclouddough#sensoryplay#openendedplay#invitationtoplay#flisattable#clouddoughrecipe

My mom and I made some cloud dough today! An inspiration from my mom's friend @astridivan sometime ago 😁. Cloud dough feels a bit like kinetic sand but a much softer version, like cloud 😋. A bit like snow, a bit like rain, a bit like sand, a bit like dough. So it started with simple scooping, turned into aquarium making, turned into snowman making, turned into snow sprinkling! I think this can stay on for quite awhile in that table 😉. #29mo#sophieathome#flisattableplay#flisattable#flisattable#diyclouddough#sensoryplay#openendedplay#invitationtoplay#messyplay#messisfun#woodentoys

This weekend’s spring activity focused on new growth, buds blooming, and the bright beautiful greens that adorn nature in the springtime! To help teach miss 2.5 about the changes that we will soon start to see outside, we had her start to decorate a bare tree with leaves and little flower buds. We’re letting miss 2.5 lead the way on this one, and it’s fairly true to nature that she only wants to do a little bit at a time! . . . . Miss 2.5’s favourite part of this activity was deciding where to place the bird. Her interest in that little bird is inspiring my next activity for her as part of our spring project! . . . . The tree is an old prop that I used to hang jewellery on, and the artificial leaves and buds are all remnants from prior crafts - hence the various species of plants coming together on a tree! 🤷🏻‍♀️

#marchmeetthemaker Day 18 - mistake or lesson. Part of the beauty of working wit
#marchmeetthemaker Day 18 - mistake or lesson. Part of the beauty of working with wood is that if you make a mistake you can simply sand it off and start again so I guess my answer will be a far more serious truth in which I almost inadvertently copied another brands design. A set I’d made before we launched was flagged as being similar to a design already out, which it absolutely was so I can only assume I’d seen it somewhere and recreated it. It was a mortifying lesson, where I had to pull the whole line and apologise profusely to the other designer. Im glad I learned that in the beginning though, it taught me to stay away from Pinterest just in case 🙈 but also it made me go the extra mile in my designs, Not to pick the simplest option and to always add that extra little something.. I feel a hard lesson served me well. Still makes me cringe thinking about it though 😬 🖤🌈

Rainbow Rice 🌈 We are on the floor today. Rosalie has one week left in her cast and with her broken leg our activities have had to be adapted a bit because she has to keep off her feet. Not so easy with an energetic 2 year old. A lot of play had as been confined to boxes, trays and baskets that can be used on her lap but sometimes we get down on the floor and stretch, roll and shuffle about. Today we played with rainbow rice and some of her loose parts, scoops and her beloved bees. Im curious to see what combination of things will fall out of her cast when it is removed next week! #rainbowrice#looseparts#loosepartsplay#springplay#welovespringplay#play#loveplay#march#grimmsrainbow#plantoys#plantoysbees#openendedplay#sensory#sensoryplay#floorplay#messyplay#invitationtoplay#learningathome#earlylearning#learningthroughplay#earlyyears#ealryyearsireland#irishmammy#trayplay#busytoddler#toddler#toddlerplay

We’ve made a rainy day play scene with our little ones today ☔️ . We love creating scenes using toys from @babipur with our littles, it ignites imagination and story telling. Are the Grapat Nins running home out of the rain to take cover in our Grimm’s Natural House? Or off outside to jump in some puddles? Or maybe they’ve got caught out in a storm on their way to feed their Lanka Kade horse. Is the sun about to come out or is a windy thunder storm on its way? Possibilities are endless with these beautiful open ended toys . We’ve used Grimm’s Natural Tunnel, Natural House and Bridge. Grapat Nins and Raindrops and some of our Lanka Kade Farmers Field set all available at @babipur . #lovebabipur#babipur#babipurchallenge#grimnswoodentoys#grapat#lankakade#openendedplay#invitationtoplay

Do you want to keep your child quiet and occupied in a restaurant or waiting room? After years of putting together little “restaurant pouches” of mini papers, crayons, stickers,etc., I’m showing you how to do it for your family. We are not a ‘screens in a restaurant or waiting room’ family. [Zero judgement if you are- SERIOUSLY.] We are all allowed to parent in a way that works best for our own families, and I mean that one million percent. Today on the blog, I’m sharing my favorite on-the-go activity ideas that are simple for you to throw together yourself. Tell me your favorite way to keep the kids occupied in a restaurant and then join me on the blog where I’ll show you mine. Happy Monday, my friends! . . . . #theworkspace#raisingcreativekids#busybags#openendedplay#playmatters#thisiswhyweplay#playroom#playroominspo#motherhoodsimplified#motherhoodrising#ohheymama#travelwithkids#momshelpingmoms

F I N D T H E S U N - we had fun with this ‘weather’ themed sensory bottle this morning! It is perfect for little hands, visually stimulating with the different colours and textures inside and makes a lovely sound too! The bright yellow button as the sun was a great addition and we had fun shaking the bottle to find the sun again!

I wanted pikolo clothes to be worn by all babies & toddlers. With non gender specific garments & colours it means the life of the garment reaches far beyond just 1 child’s wear. Keep for you next child or pass onto friends for their children. This is great for the environment and your wallet. The prints & colours are for everyone, because colours are colours not genders.

My little team of helpers yesterday before the event we held to raise some pennies for @freddies_fight .... Some HUGE thank You’s .... it’s never a one man band and there’s NO WAY I could have done it without the following ... ~ My husband, Chris for the continued support in my crazy adventures. ~ My wonderful parents Elaine & Tony ~ you still do a great job parenting!! 😂 ~ my wonderful little wildlings for being my ever evolving inspiration .... minute by minute! ~ Mary, Lawrie (the surrogate grandparents!) and sweet shop Gemma. You guys were amazing - could not have done it without you. (At all!) ~ @pieceofcake_by_ola for the delicious and creative cakes! You performed miracles! ~ Lizzy for the added marshmallow bonus ... amazing! ~ Kerry, designated photographer 😘 ~ Husthwaite Village ~ for allowing me to use the hall free of charge. ~~~ MOST importantly ~~~ YOU Guys, everyone who came and donated to this heartbreaking cause. I did take a few moments to stop and look, the children were having such a great time. I’m still a huge believer in the importance of play ~ Watching 8/9 year olds fully immersed in moving water around, experimenting, discovering .... there is not enough of this in schools ~ makes me sad! Still blown away by the North Yorkshire community spirit. 💙 Keep on doing it .... they’re nearly halfway there ... . . . #freddiesfight#neuroblastoma#cancerawareness#muckypups#creativeplay#imaginativeplay#supportingthearts#freeplay#simplifytoys#looseparts#openendedtoys#openendedplay#openendedmaterials#openendedart#exploreimagination

DOLL HOUSE ✨ This is hands down the most played with toy for Phoenix right now. She includes it in so much of her play, along with her LEGO & figurines. Sooo much imagination is used here & let's her little creative mind go wild 😍 Ever since her birthday party, she's been creating parties in the doll house - inviting different people (figurines) and making stories up. It's so sweet to listen to. . #learningstartsathome#playspace#insideplay#playroomfun#wherelearningmeetsplay#imaginativeplay#playislearning#playbasedlearning#playmatters#playfullittlelearners#invitationtoplay#playtime#brisbanemums#earlylearning101#kidsactivities#dollahouse#aldifinds#toddleractivities#preschoolplay#thisiswhyweplay#learningthroughplay#openendedplay#childhoodmemories#motherhoodthroughig#playroomdecor#motherhoodunplugged#childactivity#learningisfun#4yearsold#mumlife
