This is my first official post of our new blog! I’m looking forward to having this as a place to share snippets of our life as we learn more about Montessori/Reggio etc..
Today we added some natural elements to our painting session. I gathered some leaves and twigs while we were out and about a couple of days ago and set them out in a little basket on Binti’s art shelf who’s 2 1/2 (means ‘my daughter’ in arabic, will be referring to my little one as this throughout the blog 🙂 )
We painted leaves…..
And stamped them onto paper…
Love the mix of colours on this one!
Painting with sticks…..
Even Mama got in on the action!..
I picked up a lovely branch from the park and we painted it many different colours, it was all quite therapeutic if I’m honest..
Wouldn’t be complete without a sprinkling of glitter!..
Freshly picked from the garden..
After getting creative the cleaning awaits! but I’m trying to teach Binti how to clean up all the brushes etc.. after each session and put them away in the correct place. I recently put up an art shelf in the kitchen and placed a few things at her level, with this particular goal in mind.
