montessori practical life - how we montessoriHow We Montessori – Independence in the Kitchen

This would have to be the most inspiring post I have read in a long time. Just by measuring the ingredients beforehand, Kylie’s son Otis (who is the same age as Sarah) is able to make this banana cake independently. I remember seeing something like this in a book some time ago; children were making bread using ingredients which had been measured out for them. So inspirational.

This post really resonated with me. I remember climbing trees, swimming in dams, playing in storm water drains and riding alone to a friend’s house when I was a kid. As much as I think we give Jack and Sarah freedom, I can’t see myself ever letting them do some of the things I did when I was a kid. Why is that? Fear of risk?

The Wholefood Mama – ‘b’ is for (wholefood) budget Part 2

I’ve been thinking more about the food we eat and the food I serve for my family lately. Nothing too drastic, just trying to make better choices. I came across this post written by one of my favourite wistfully beautiful bloggers, Steph from This Brown Wren. Here she talks about some of the ways her family prepares and enjoys food.

  1. Thank you so much for all these links! Can’t wait to check them out!

    1. I know you’ll love them Chelsey ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. When I was in training as an early childhood teacher years ago, a mentor of mine took me to observe in a special public school. They had a kitchen corner in their kdg classroom completely set up for the kids to bake and cook by themselves. It was awesome. There were child friendly recipes, everything was labelled and the kids actually would go in and cook and bake on their own.

    1. Isn’t that just wonderful?! That’s kind of like what I remember reading. I really love this idea; especially in a preschool and kindergarten.

  3. Thanks for your kind words and for featuring my Green post! I worked at an amazing Reggio preschool while in grad school in San Francisco and it’s definitely influenced how we interact with our children and the kinds of experiences we try to provide for them. I am so excited to have found your blog and have already been inspired by your posts! Btw, we also have the wooden rainbow by Little Sapling Toys. I love their design and construction!

    1. Gosh how I would have loved to have worked in a Reggio-inspired preschool. What an amazing experience for you. It really does shine through in how you write. I am really happy to have found you too ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thrilled to see you have enjoyed the post Steph wrote about wholefood budgeting, thanks so much for sharing it here in your lovely space xx

    1. You’re welcome. I really did love that post and was happy to find your site. I love Steph’s writing and it was nice to find you though her xx
