January has been a busy and eventful month. A few milestones occurred which I will tell you about in my next posts. Chanel has been using her time to explore new textures with crafts, nature and food. We also decorated our practical life space with a colourful pompom garland.
I didn't know how simple it was for a toddler to make a pompon garland.
Chanel above is threading carefully a string through little balls of felt. Some supervision with the needle is required but a 3 and a half year old child can do this!
We found this magnificent root of Brussels sprouts at our local fruitshop. Counting has never been so much fun. These sprouts were particularly sweet with a nutty flavour. Chanel took out a few at a time each day, counted them , then we cooked them together and ate them. It has been a great pastime on rainy days.
Weaving is a new activity that we have out on our sewing shelf. Thanks to Slanchogled for introducing us to these gorgeous kits. The string threads around the sticks and makes it easier for a child to weave a basket.
Have you tried any of these activities? I'd love to hear it!
