Today we headed over to our friend’s house, who also home educates her children, for a baking session. It is really nice to get the kids together with other like-minded homeschooling families,to socialise and do activities together! There were four children all together (including 2 under 14 months) which can be quite difficult! It can be difficult to homeschool and look after a baby at the same time, so you just do what you can! But today’s session was very successful and the children (including babies) had a lot of fun!
Today’s highlight: Lady P was given an egg which she banged on the table one handed and put in the mixing bowl, egg shell and all. It was pretty funny!
Lady P is wearing an apron and hat that I made myself from a website called Making Montessori Ours. The author was kind enough to put a free pattern on her website, which I printed off and sewed myself (can you hear the pride in my voice?). This is a very straightforward pattern and is perfect for beginners. In fact, it’s my first project.
After we had lunch (and cupcakes), the children did a picture together then played with play dough! It was a great day!
