Around here - on Otis' desk

Otis making polygons

Around here this week, some pictures from Otis' desk. Above making polygons (both of my children have been enjoying this). Good on so many levels. 

Essential oils in playdough copy

Some fresh play dough. We use essential oils throughout our home and in the children's spaces. I've put some essentials oils c/o ECO.Modern Essentials in the play dough (we only use pure and always Australian made, ECO.Modern Essentials is a fantastic Queensland company). The boys and I often make our own room or pillow spray with a few drops of essential oil in some distilled water in a small mist bottle. We  use this vaporiser in the children's bedroom, the light is a perfect night light and I know it is safe. 

The Open Ocean at How we Montessori

Reading The Open Ocean which fits so nicely into the ocean theme of our nature table. Lots of larger than life shell, starfish and ocean creature references, also lots of lift the flaps and pop-ups for children. Next on my wish list is Birds of a Feather

First Discoveries Book Light at How we Montessori

Also reading another First Discoveries book, this one is on Light. I've mentioned before how the First Discovery books are at a really good level for Otis. 

The boys are I are exploring more of the city this weekend, the boys are insisting another ride on the city cat and we will have to see where that leads us. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
