I do love real, raw items!
.
I see on Childminding groups all the time debates over food play, drawing on objects, how encouraging children to draw on anything other than paper is just teaching them they can draw wherever... children who play with food will develop bad table manners etc.
.
I bet @banksy was never restricted to a pencil and white paper!
.
My 10 year old was sat in a tub of baked beans as a baby in just a nappy on more than one occasion, and she鈥檚 now the first to tell someone not to talk with food in their mouth 馃槅
.
Jokes aside - I鈥檓 not teaching these children to take a permanent marker to a newly painted living room wall - I鈥檓 teaching them to think outside of the box, to follow their imaginations and not feel restricted. In just a few years time, these little humans will be sat at a desk with a grey pencil, paper and an objective.**
.
**This is a dig at the government and our shoddy education system, not all of the fabulous teachers out there desperately trying to engage children in their learning.

A Peek into Our "Preschool"
Our "Quiet Growing Time"

We do not start formal lessons until the age of six.  We play and play and play and read and read and read aloud... However, my little Ava is eager to "learn real things" as she says, just like her big sisters and brother.  So, we will be slowly reading and playing our way through the alphabet with "Delightful Reading Level 1" and "Delightful Handwriting" by Simply Charlotte Mason.  This beautiful ABC book is "A is for Art: A Fine Art Alphabet Book" by Lanaya Gore.  This book will be our gentle introduction to letters.

I LOVE this quote...
"Perhaps a mother's first duty to her children is to secure for them a quiet growing time, a full six years of passive receptive life, the waking part of it spend for the most part out in the fresh air."
~Charlotte Mason

What do you do with your kiddo for school?

I鈥檝e had a lot of this question lately and the real answer is... we play.  We play together, explore together, play games together, paint together, cook together, fold laundry together.  In all of this we find education!

"We want our children to value the beauty and goodness of this world God has made for us and not to be changed by the ugliness and evil we know they will encounter.  We hope our children will grow up to touch others with the ideals of God's life, beauty, and goodness."
~Clay and Sally Clarkson, The Lifegiving Parent

Bringing God's truth, beauty, and goodness into my home, into our homeschooling, and into our lives is my #1 goal. 
These books have changed my life!

[Nature Ice Cubes + Colored Sugar] 
My girls love playing with ice, so why not make it fun and add some nature! After our 鈥渃olor鈥 nature hunt the other night, I put our finds in water and froze them! .... I also made colored sugar the other day(not letting them know it was sugar馃槈) They had a blast mixing that in with the ice this morning! 
Next time I want to try and do colored salt... I just want to get rid of the sugar! 
Tip: when I鈥檓 going to throw something out, (like the sugar I bought months ago and never used).. I try and make something fun out of it for the girls before throwing it away!

Before I discovered Tinkergarten, I was a mom who never felt quite right at events and programs with my littles because of their 鈥榣arger-than-life鈥 busy temperaments. I always felt like I had to contain and control and make them follow the rules and honestly none of us were prepared for that level of discipline and control. It just felt like stress and it was rarely fun. 
Tinkergarten has created this magical space where my kids can run free and be exactly who and how they are and they are celebrated for their silliness and imaginations and energy. And in this magical space, with no resistance or 鈥榗orrection鈥, I have watched my kids gain the ability to sit, to listen, to share and to control themselves in ways that are appropriate for their ages. Without any badgering or stress or pushing the issues from me. 
As a leader, I love watching the guides just relax and enjoy the wonderful things that their explorers bring to class just by being who they are. I love the way that each child can come to class, with their own feelings and moods and needs, and find their own unique way to engage (or sometimes just to observe) and get exactly what they need from the play that day. 
Tinkergarten believes in helping kids be 鈥榬eady to learn, ready to thrive, and ready for anything鈥 and I am watching my children become all of those things in a joyful and playful way that honors them as the uniquely awesome little people they are.

FROG RESCUE & COUNTING 馃惛 .

I set up this little #invitationtoplay for Barnaby and Poppy. I told them that the pond had been frozen over overnight and it was their job to rescue all the frogs and put them on the correct log. The logs had numbers and they were to put the correct number of frogs on the logs. I gave them warm water spray bottles and they used wooden spoons to break up the ice. It took a while but we got there in the end. It was a very wet activity- 2 kids with spray bottles - I expect you can imagine 馃う馃徏鈥嶁檧锔. But they enjoyed it and managed to release all the frogs. This activity was done with the play along #allatplaychallenge 鈥榬hyming鈥 in mind with @allthemumery and @grays_at_play. The book we used was 鈥榝rog on a log鈥 which is a #osbornebooks. These books are great for first time readers and Poppy loves them.l (See last photo) 鈽猴笍

I cannot wait to share this sweet and beautiful book with the Little Seeds tomorrow! Claude Monet was a brilliant artist and spent 7 decades sharing his passions of nature and art. He spent hours trying to get the perfect representation of natural light as it shifted through the day. We'll  be making our own beautiful watercolor butterflies, plotting and planting our Little Seeds Butterfly Garden.....AND (fingers crossed) watching the Zebra Longwings emerge from his chrysalis!!!馃榾馃榾

If you want to include some Art History into your butterfly studies, this little gem is a wonderful springboard for some real discussion and fun stylistic practice!!

***LINK IN BIO*** I've just started a Go Fund Me Campaign to help me raise money for my mobile preschool dream. I want to purchase and transform a retired school bus into a mobile classroom to enable me to create learning envronments beyond the four walls of a classroom and out into the community and natural environment. Any dollar amount can help support this dream. Thank you!

This afternoon we set off on a nature scavenger hunt with the aim of finding items for every letter of the alphabet.

We had to get quite creative with some of the letters, while others seemed downright impossible! (Perhaps you nature boffins might have some ideas for us? 馃) Once we had our bags filled with loot, we went home and worked together to tape each item to our chalk board alongside it's corresponding letter. Here is what we came up with:

A - acorn
B - bark, berries, buds
C - conker (horse chestnut) 
D - daisy, dandelion 
E - eggshell
F - feather, flower
G - grass
H - Hydrangea

Sure, the fancy toys, gear and equipment is nice, but you don't NEED them to engage your child in meaningful play. A pan of water, a few household tools and some decaying cut flowers will do the trick just fine.

Hello Everyone! 馃挅

New batch of Li鈥檒 Explorers Sensory Play Workshops begins in September. 猸愶笍What is Li鈥檒 Explorers? 
I am Tanvi, mum to a 3.5 year old. I have always found Sensory Play activities very interesting and have been doing with my son since he was a baby. But last year I started making them regularly and he loved it. I posted these activities on my Instagram account and got so many enquiries from everyone, if I would do it for their babies too. And that was the beginning of L'il Explorers. I want to give the same joy and learning experience to other babies too. 猸愶笍What is Sensory Play? 
Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child's senses: touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing. Sensory activities facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create,investigate and explore. 猸愶笍What are the Workshops about? 
The workshops have the sensory play activities that are specifically hand made depending on the theme & age group. It is designed to encourage a wide range of early learning skills like language & vocabulary, fine & gross motor skills, visualization & imagination, hand eye coordination, counting, object & color recognition, STEAM concepts. 猸愶笍So enrol your child for the new batch that begins in September and get ready to have fun with your little one! 
Location - Defence Colony, New Delhi

Timings - 
Monday - 4:30 pm for 2 year olds

Reggio Emilia preschools have been consistently hailed as the best preschools in the world.  It is a project-based approach to early childhood education.  In Reggio schools children are encouraged to explore, observe, question, discuss and hypothesise to develop clarity and understanding of the world. 
While many parents may feel stress when deciding on a program that is suited for their child, it is important to remember that the preschool you choose should help lay the foundation for emotional, social, and cognitive skills necessary for future academic success.

I was completely taken by surprise the other day when I saw the date (it was the 20th) surely August wasn鈥檛 almost over? Hadn鈥檛 it just started?  The daytime temps don鈥檛 yet feel like summer is waning but the nighttime gives it away. The evenings are getting cooler which is a welcomed relief for the lot of us without a/c.  My barely there garden is actually growing some more tomatoes which will be ready for harvest in just a few weeks. Schools are starting and we鈥檙e preparing our home and hearts for the adventures ahead of schooling.  I鈥檓 not quite ready for the summer picnics and river days to end but I鈥檓 not fighting it either.

Took a quick trip to Wild Cat Den! Stopped to observe a worm along the way! Admittedly, we had to cut the adventure short due to some yelling behavior by a certain preschooler! We'll try again another time! 馃し鈥嶁檧锔忦煒#parentingishard .

Rockpool Play

Totally un-planned. This went in so many directions! 
I chucked some sandy stones in a builders tray to wash them. Added the water and along came Heidi with more stones. I chucked in a few brushes that were on the grass. Heidi added a few more scoops of sand and some Little Mermaid figures and Nina set to work brushing all the stones 'clean'. We made ripples with our hands and the brushes, made mini rockpools for the characters, looked at our reflections and drew in the sand at the bottom of the water. We added salt to make it like the sea 馃寠. #play #openendedplay #rockpool #outdoorplay #natureplay #earlyyears #earlylearning #eyfs #teachermum #reflection #stones #water #waterplay

One of the core principles of the Reggio Emilia Approach is the environment as the third teacher.  Our outdoor learning spaces are just as important as our indoor ones.  Nature play is fundamental for children who are beginning to understand the workings of the world around them.

Do you have any special rituals for cleansing your crystals? What鈥檚 your favorite tool for cleansing? 
My favorites are my sustainably sourced Palo Santo sticks and natural running water (for crystals that can handle water, of course!) I had brought this Blue Chalcedony with me when I last visited the ocean and let it be cleansed by the trickle of water over rocks heading towards the sea. Not only did it make my crystal feel rejuvenated, but being at the water felt so cleansing for my soul, too. 馃槍

Water is such a beautiful element, so cleansing and releasing. You can place a crystal in running water to cleanse, but there are other things that can be done, too. You can bury a crystal and let the earth infuse it with grounding energy (just remember where you put it), smudge it with sage or palo santo,  give it a sound bath, let it sit in sunlight or even let it sit with some other crystals that have capabilities to cleanse. Crystal hygiene is important to maintain to give them a little reset from their heavy burden- they do so much for us energetically, it鈥檚 nice to return the favor.
