About Me

I'm a teacher turned stay at home mama. I love finding things to make and do!

I love this can.  It's a baby oatmeal container that I wrapped scrapbooking paper around.  But it's not the outside that makes it wonderful, it's what is on the inside.
I really admire the Montessori method and how children are treated with respect and taught how to do things at a very young age.  I came across this blog recently and I love her idea of the "monti-jar."  (You MUST go visit for yourself!)

Inside are slips of paper...activities to do whenever you have a few extra minutes in the day and need something to do.  You just pull out an activity and do it!  

Some examples:
-handling a book
-using a zipper
-cleaning up spills with a sponge
-putting materials away neatly

I'm excited to start using this with A.  I think it will be a great way to teach her skills in a fun way.
