A Pom Pom drop box made from tissue paper box from our #hungrycaterpillarhts. With some creativity, many things in our house can be made into fun learning toys for our children. This one kept my toddler (and even my preschooler) entertained for a long time. Last day to join in our DIY learning toys challenge over at @montessorifromtheheart this week!
CALICO WATERCOLOUR || miss5 is so pleased with her watercolour painting on calico. We have had so much fun with this embroidery hoop. It has provided many opportunities to explore drawing and painting on different textures and surfaces.
