i know, much like my friend Deanna, when it rains it pours blog entries. I recently came across a fabulous blog that is all about teaching montessori style and has regular updates on different works trays to use called My Montessori Journey. This blog had a recent post for a Halloween work with bugs(i think hers was spiders but all i had was little ants). I thought it was timely and it would be a fun thing for Mitchell especially, since that boy loves the bugs! Here is ours all set up...the glass cup with the ants, tweezers to transfer them over with and a small muffin tin to place them in. They dove in right away...it was such a hit there was even some fighting. Not that i like the fighting but at least then i know they really like it. I am going to keep this one going beyond Halloween for Mitchell to use when Ave and i are doing school so he stays busy.
***I had a question about this one...so i will add this revision..You use the tweezers to transfer the bugs from the glass to the tin and back again. It helps with coordination and sorting, etc.***
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
