There are two new release Montessori books that you need to know about. The Montessori Book of Coordination and Life Skills (for ages 2+) and The Montessori Book of Words and Numbers (for ages 3+) by Maja Pitamic.

The activities are all very Montessori, which is fantastic for Montessori families who just want to be able to pick up a book or resource and know it will suit their teaching methodology. All of the activities are easy, easy to do and easy to present. They are not complicated. They also... Read more →

In particular, I'm finding inspiration from the way Allyson uses bunting and flags. Not only do they add colour and are a focal point, but they are also so, so beautiful. I've recently ordered some garden creature bunting from Etsy and I'm thinking of using it in Otto's bedroom. Here are some of the other Montessori, Waldorf and nature inspired flags and bunting that I'm loving: Our World Fabric Bunting. Bless this Garden Prayer Flags. Garden Herbs Flag. Green Prayer...

If you are visiting Cornwall, the Eden Project is a must see! I had high expectations and it did not disappoint. It's huge, it's amazing and it's so inspiring. It has to be the largest environmental learning centre I've seen. The Eden Project was built on a disused clay quarry and the aim was to showcase some of the world's most significant plants. But what it really does is showcase the relationship between plants and people and the amazing biodiversity we have on Earth. "Eden is a gateway into the relationships between plants and people, and a fascinating insight into... Read more →
