"What we need is a world full of miracles, like the miracle of seeing the young child seeking work and independence, and manifesting a wealth of enthusiasm and love."
- Dr. Montessori

|Inside the tent they built with silks!|
|By turning the wheels, gears spun the leaf images kaleidoscopic!|
|Up in a tree house, a music station!|
|Madeline goes on a nature scavenger hunt, all in a tree house.|
|Sarah builds a tower with natural materials. We spend A LOT of time here!|
|Fishing with bamboo and experimenting with water flow|
|Madeline is working with the chalkboard, practicing some lowercase letters. She's feeling nostalgic these days with the materials. Her time at Montessori was very special.|
|Candy Land Cake! Yum!|
|A birthday pose!|
(The dresses are from Little Tickles on Etsy)
|We sang for each child, and they blew out their candles separately.|
|Making ICE CREAM!!! We added blueberries and raspberries today.|
|In a small bag mix together:|
1/2 cup cream or half & half
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
(for allergic children, soy or rice milk can be used.
Try vanilla flavor and omit the extract)
|Shake! Place the little bag into a larger zipper bag |
halfway full of ice and 6 tablespoons salt.
Shake for 5 minutes and serve immediately.
Note: Don't do this over grass,
the salt burnt ours. Oops!
