I have been very lax on posting pictures- I wanted to post at least one with each post! But honestly, uploading pictures on a daily basis would be a pain in my rear- it’s already a large pain. But I do love to share pics, so doing it every so often isn’t so bad. 🙂

Here are some things I’ve been doing for my waldorfy/montessori approach to preschool:

Our nature basket. We don’t have space for a full table, so I took a small basket I had, added an old silk (my Gramma used to cover her head with this one), and took Fairy Girl on a nature walk. We came back with goodies, as you can see.

My Gramma lived in Florida, and liked to collect shells- I have a small jar of them, so I took a few of the largest ones out and put them in a basket for Fairy Girl to explore.

I’ve been wanting to do this sensory activity for a long time. I have fun memories of doing it when I was little- you take old film cannisters, and cotton balls, and put different scents onto them to sniff and identify- I tried to get a range of smells- there was lavender, peppermint, garlic, cinnamon, vanilla, orange, eucalyptus, and clove. Then I put it where she could find it.

I have a small collection of thrifted tins, and I put all the various gluten free flours I have now in them. It’s so pretty. 🙂

And I saved the best for last. Fairy Girl is on the right. *love*

Pictures

Ok, here are the collection of pictures that were on the camera. They go all the way back to early fall. For some reason, a lot of them turned out blurry. I’m sorry. I also apologize for the sizes of these. I have fiddled so much with the photos tonight, that I’m just going to have to leave it as it is. I’m still learning this blogging thing.

Here is Fairy Girl dressed as a fairy (what else?) for our local renfaire:

This is the clearest one from early fall- she was catching bubbles that her Gramma blew:

In October, we went to Waterman’s Farm for the fall festival. We took a hayride, picked out pumpkins, and Fairy Girl took a pony ride! She LOVED it. (Mama thought she might be nervous, but she wasn’t a bit nervous!)

Got our pumpkins!

First time she let me do anything with her hair- she suddenly looked so grown up, and so much less like a baby!

Dress up as a bellydancer: “boobs” and “tutu” and no, I’m not making this up!
