Home Ed for Babies

I haven’t been blessed with babies who nap long enough 😉 and we have been getting dazzled lately as Tercio is getting quicker and quicker! I have decided to start something I used to do, but haven’t for a while – treasure baskets!

I first came across treasure baskets in the book “How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way” by Tim Seldin. But my treasure baskets didn’t really take off.

At Counting Coconuts, though, treasure baskets are a real inspiration. Make sure you look at her pinterest board too.

Now I am all inspired!

Building with Questacon Science Squad

Have you seen the Questacon Science Squad site yet? A fabulous resource full of great experiments and fantastic buildings, the Questacon site is fabulous for visual and hands on learners like LE. Yesterday LE made a balloon car. We had made one months ago with him, but LE made this on his own after watching this video again. I was really impressed with his substitutions too!

 

Balloon Powered Car

Those great wheels were acquired at a local recycling shop – let me know if you want the details.

If you make anything from those videos, I’d love the hear about it. There are plenty of ideas there.
