Food allergy advice? 😩 she’s allergic to milk, eggs and peanuts. I’m hopeful she will grow out of it. My mom and brother have to carry epipens around for their food allergies, and now we have to! Any advice? 🙏🏼 This food allergy thing can be scary! 😕

Yesterday my son saw a picture of a Wooly Mammoth in his Lego instruction book. This sparked a fun conversation about extinct animals and hypothesizing why they are extinct. Then we talked about how we can look at evidence and make educated conclusions. One of the questions he asked me was, 'How did they keep warm?'
Little did he know his question was a perfect intro into our polar bear mini study today! We plunged our hands into ice cold water to see how long we could keep our hand in there. Brrrrrrrr! Then we wrapped our hand in 'fat' (we used coconut oil) and saw how much warmer it kept our hand.
How do polar bears keep warm?
❄️ a 4 inch later of fat!
❄️ black skin!
❄️ CLEAR hollow hair!

We are working on one-to-one correspondence today. They say this can take months to a year to understand so if you are working on it too be patient.
What are you working on today with your toddler? What have you found useful when teaching one-to-one correspondence?

We’re throwing it back to last Friday night when we decided to bring back bedazzling. That was fun. #thechattery#throwback 💎

Today fourth grade students tested their wind turbines! The class has been studying wind energy and was given a few select materials with which to build a wind turbine as a team. The results were tested today and based on the outcome, each team will reflect on the results and redesign to enable their turbines to create energy in both low and high winds. Great first test fourth grade!
NEW CRATE ANNOUNCEMENT!
The 💕 XOXO Crate💕 will be February’s crate of the month and will begin shipping on February 1! Get your child in the spirit of Valentine’s Day without touching a piece of candy 🍭!!! 🤗
Included in your crate will be all the materials needed to do the following three activities (more photos to come this week!):
1. Built with Love Sensory Bin: Tap your child’s inner engineer by using this beautiful purple rice and some mini cups along with some measuring spoons to build towers, pyramids, etc. (*NOTE: this is messy...invest in a small broom and dust pan to teach your child how to sweep up afterwards!)
2. Fizzing Hearts ♥️: Your little scientist 👩🔬 👨🔬 will make a chemical reaction that will make their hearts beat a little faster!
3. Paper Heart Sculptures: To round out this #STEAM crate, your child will make an art sculpture that incorporates the science of building using paper hearts. They are beautiful and won’t even realize they are learning!
Play. Learn. Get Messy!

❄️ADVICE❄️I’ve been asked about some winter coloured dolls. I’ve started painting some of the set with shades of blue.
Do I leave them plain for open ended play? Or...
Do I paint hair (maybe white) and some snowflakes on the body?
I think this is now my most favourite book in the world. Thank you to @mudpiesanddaffodils for posting about it earlier this week. Shine a light to see inside hidden habitats. Swipe to see a couple of pages.
Craft Supplies - how do I store them? Sectioned Boxes of course! 😍
I did have them in glass jars on a trolley, however it was no longer working for me so I decided to change things up! This is something I do fairly often to try and find a solution that works for me, as I travel to & from work with all my Toys & Supplies. 💼
Sectioned Boxes take up less space, they stack perfectly and they look good! 🙌🏼 These boxes are from @bunnings, they’re $8 and super deep & sturdy.
I get all my Craft Supplies from @educationalexperience or $2 stores. #acraftyliving_storage •

Do you rotate out your seasons work when the seasons change? This is a pretty simple activity and the children enjoy decorating their trees with colorful blobs of paint. Heads up, some of them get a bit -er- over enthusiastic with the q-tips so you may want to have a restocking jar handy on the shelf in case they need to get a fresh one. 😹.
See the link in my profile 👉@trilliummontessori for more ideas for your January art shelves (many of these ideas can be used year round)
What’s the most used toy in your household? Ours is easily the Play Kitchen & Play Food!
Whether they’re playing the role of a parent at home, a head chef or waiter in a restaurant or cafe, Play Kitchens allow children to use their Imagination, and develop Language, Communication, Independence & Self Confidence through PLAY!
This was the works of Mr4, Miss3 & Mr2 earlier this week. As a Nanny, I often struggle with feeling like I need to constantly entertain & be involved, but sitting back and watching them engrossed in PLAY either on their own or with each other is so important & makes me so happy! #acraftyliving_playroom •
