Montessori education information from a Montessori teacher and Mom. Personal art work and journal entries about my life as a busy Mom of three sons ranging in age from 7 years to 21 years.
My hope: To create a place where parenting questions can be answered and conversations as well as ideas shared.

Multimedia Sculpture: Thursday's Art+Play
"Today is Thursday, Yes indeed!"
Today's Art+Play was Multimedia Sculpture! That's a fancy name for: "gluing all sorts of things together". The kids seemed to enjoy gluing (as most young children do) and the choice of materials interested them also. I mentioned, when demonstrating the activity to the group, that some people may prefer to draw on the card board prior to the gluing. Sometimes this helps to focus a younger artist (and limits the amount of glue that gets used). Let them glue, glue, glue and they will create something original and interesting to look at.
And now for something completely different: Check out this very cool web page in celebration of the late great Rachel Carson (born May 27th).
