Hands-On Art

Nov 24, 2017

By now it should be clear that I have love creating spaces for children home.  I know that’s one of the reasons I’m so drawn to Montessori education, with its emphasis on the importance of the physical (and emotional) environment in the child’s development.

First, of course, comes the joy of creating spaces and activities that inspire young children. Nothing beats seeing the twinkle in the eye of a child happily engaged in play or learning.

Here’s an example of recycled materials turned-into-art: Emily was inspired by the circular paper packing pieces and said, “these look like flowers!”

So we painted and decorated!

Here is the final product: in the end, the girls wanted to add their art to the display.
