DIY Insect Catcher

We're using a clean, used Parmesan cheese container as our insect catcher this spring. Billy just brought me this salamander, and this is a great way to (quickly) study him before we release him back into the woods!

Spring Songs & Fingerplays

A daily circle is an important part of our #homeschool rhythm. Learning the songs is great literacy practice for my kids, and helpful for me too! The fingerplays are handy while waiting in restaurants, and singing circle songs can usually get a smile from a grumpy litte one :)

A (Very) Simple Garland

We've been making garlands to welcome spring! So easy to make, and great matching practice for little hands.

Georgia O'Keefe Poppies

A sweet, simple project for spring! I think these, via Painted Paper, would make lovely cards- like Mother's Day?- or look pretty strung up on a garland.

Rain-proof Plant Markers!

Our plant markers usually fade or chip before the end of the season, these Easy markers from +Randi Dukes will fix that! And I love the size, perfect for sounding out plant names with my kids.

Emotional Tools for Kids
Little emotions can be overwhelming! Great tips to help kids work through theirs, with tools that can grow with them.

http://ww2.kqed.org/mindshift/2015/04/13/the-benefits-of-helping-preschoolers-understand-and-discuss-their-emotions/?

Interesting tidbit: "Research indicates that reading fiction promotes empathy. For little ones, picture books offer an additional tool for teaching emotional literacy: illustrations that serve as visual context clues." We'll be using this with our rainy day reading today!

Time to Create

The reality of the question, "How do you find time to create?"

#kbnmoms   #creativity   #artist  
How do you find time to create? It's a question that I'm asked a lot now that we have three children. And it's a question that I've spent my life asking other Mamas. I just realized recently- mostly while mulling over this po...

Work
Occupation
I get to stay home with our two wonderful kids. When our daughter was a colicky baby, I knew I was going to have my hands full keeping her busy! She's still a bundle of energy, now joined by a younger brother, and we spend our days jumping from one activity to another. I began my blog over a year ago as a journal of our family's creative experiences, and to inspire other creative families too.
Skills
I'm a metalsmith, muralist, photographer, one-hand diaper changer and pancake maker.
