  1. I love your week! love! Everything looks like so much fun. We enjoy colour mixing and experimenting with colours as well. I’ll have to see what you do with your toweling paper after the coloured water. We still have some of our sheets left (my daughter made SO many haha) and we’ve used heaps to decorate cards etc. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous week 🙂

    1. I’m thinking about cutting them into smaller squares and circles, laminating them and sewing them into some bunting. We have a lot too and the colours turned out so beautifully. I think they will look lovely in a bunting for the playroom 🙂

      1. oh, that’s a great idea! love it 🙂

  2. pretty good week by the looks of things.
    Dimples has been asking me about what colours mix, your colour mixing invitation looks awesome. It ties in well with the over head play as well. We havent used a ohp, looks like fun.

    1. We got our OHP off Freecycle. A friend of mine picked one up at the tip shop for $5 🙂 They are really fabulous, the kids love playing with it.

  3. Such an inspiring, creative and beautiful week! I’m really rather in awe of anyone who chooses to homeschool… I don’t think I would have the courage to do it but your homeschooling week certainly makes me pause and wander

    1. I know that it has only officially been a week but it was a lovely week. I really like the idea of the kids being able to explore what they want for as long as they want, that’s one of the main reasons we decided to homeschool 🙂

  4. I enjoy offering free range craft at playgroup, putting out all sorts of bits and pieces and seeing what the kids come up with.
    The lavender playdough looks great with lots of texture, colour, and scent.
    This was a moment in our week

    1. Our little ‘maker box’ really needs replenishing 🙂 They really go through it don’t they? I can only imagine the amount of stuff the kids go through at playgroup!

  5. Such a lot of brilliant stuff! I do love your provocations, they always look so beautiful – very inspiring.

    Here’s our week:

    1. Thanks Eleanor 🙂 I have to say, I really love putting these little provocations out for the kids. They engage so wonderfully with them that it really makes that little bit of effort so worthwhile 🙂

  6. I love getting a glimps into your week. I can’t wait until we have warmer weather here and I can set up things outside! I have a question. Your school environment always looks to tidy, and you seem to rotate things, do you have a system for thigs that are not in use (like the feathers)? Or is everything out all the time?

    Dear everyday story,
    Can you please tell me what blue material you have on the light table?
    Thank you,
    Kelley Cochran

    1. Hi Kelley. It’s coloured salt. Just ordinary table salt and food colouring, then left on a flat tray to dry for a few hours. Wonderful fun.

    What a fabulous and colourful week

  9. Oh my, you look like you had a fabulous time. So much fun. I’ve been palnning to go to the science Museum for years. I might try and do it this weekend. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. We love the science museum. I think they know us there now we go there that often haha good thing we have an annual pass 😛

  10. Lovely lavender playdough and such beautiful engaging activities! Always love looking through your snapshots of the week and your gorgeous pics!

  11. What a creative and colorful week! I’m going to try out that playdough, too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It’s wonderful. Definitely one of the kids favourites so far. So beautifully smelling and wonderfully textured. Enjoy 🙂

  12. What a beautiful collection of photographs. These would be surely treasured when they grow older.
    I really enjoyed seeing the variety of activities they got up to this week.

  13. Hi
    I have noticed your color cards that you show in “color mixing provocation” picture. Have you bought them pre-made and if yes – can you let me know from where and if possible the list of colors. I am having problems with understanding how to teach my bilingual 24-months old colors.
    I bought an art education with set of color cards ( that look like yours) with games and exercises in Russian language then realized that names of colors are, in fact, descriptive and I actually cannot translate them literally because name of the color in Russian will not be called the same name in English. Even the colors in the rainbow are different in Russian and English… So, basically I’m after a set of the same color cards but with English names, so that I don’t confuse my daughter. Anyone’s advice is welcome, thank you!

    1. Hi 🙂 The colour cards are paint swatches from the hardware store. I got them in the colours of the rainbow, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet (although we are using ‘purple’ at the moment). If you are able to get to a paint/hardware store, you could pick up a set of cards and then cover the back in white paper and write the name of the colour.

      My daughter (who is almost two) is learning colours at the moment. I’m just teaching here these 6 colours by repeating them to her and playing different matching games. I haven’t shown her the written word yet.

  14. I so want to come to your school 🙂

  15. Beautiful
