Easy Peasy Stained Glass Windows

We love the colours on these...

Trapped air bubbles, and a rainbow of colour.

It's just a large sandwich bag ( plastic bag) with 3 blobs of paint: primary colours.
Squish and squash together and attach to window with Blu-tak.
They can play with it all day on the window as it takes a day or so to dry...

Blending and merging. Looks so beautiful!
Lovely autumnal colours.

Autumn Gnome Necklaces

One oak leaf and one birch leaf,
providing sleeping bag pouches for 2 little gnomes.

Go for a wander around the garden looking for signs of Autumn and ripening pumpkins...

and they helped the Two Little Seeds to turn over some soil.

Thank you gnomes for your company today !

The Simplest Garden Kitchen

The boys have helped their Dad make an organic looking house.
It's under a tree, and has the tree as it's roof and old branches for walls.

They created a Mud Pie kitchen from:

simply buckets and a plank of wood.
A "magic" black crayon to draw on cooker hobs, old chipped plates from the garage,
old baking containers e.g. baking powder pots, water and mud!

Big Seed had to put it together himself...they love playing in it together.

Do you like our REAL mug tree????
What a great place to store them!

Go from Autumn Sensory Box to Autumn Sensory Play Table

Take last year's Autumn Sensory Box and make one simple change...

Put everything on a small table for a semi-permanent fixture for a few weeks.

Re-ignite their play and let them take complete ownership.

Make an apple tree from tree blocks and fairy wool...

Let them choose other props from the Seasonal Table...

and mix with natural treasures from an Autumnal walk in the woods.

From Montessori Sensorial Box to Steiner Free Play
