Nature Salt Dough Craft We came back from the ocean with alot of beach treasures. I wanted to do a fun craft to incorporate the shells my little guy had found. I decided it would be fun for him to make something with salt dough, since he loves the stuff. I got his fish cutter from his playdoh toys (since this is his favorite cutter and fish are in the ocean:) but you could use any kind of shape you want. After we made the salt dough, he cut the fish shape out with his playdough cutter and picked out the shells from our beach trip that he wanted to use. Bake them at 200 degrees until they harden up. My little guy had fun playing with the fish, too, pretending they were swimming in the ocean! This craft was super fun for my preschooler!

How to make your own wormery A wormery will recycle your waste food to make a superb fertiliser for your crops and a living soil in your containers. Wormeries are perfect for small spaces: they’re small, don”t smell and make compost faster than conventional composters. You can either buy one (in the UK many councils offer them at discounted prices) or it can be fun and rewarding to make your own. It’s easy to make your own! When I started growing I imagined that wormeries were complicated and hard to make. Worms will be happy in any home that meets their basic needs: air, darkness, and moisture. What you need To make a simple box wormery you’ll need a shady space (under a bench or table is fine) for it to live and: A large plastic box with a lid (see below)A drill2 bricks or pieces of wood to stand it on.Some newspaper or cardboard. How to make it 1. An old recycling box like this is perfect. 2. You want as much air as possible to get in. 3. Standing it on bricks lets the air get to the air holes. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

BBC Nature - Earthworms videos, news and facts Activities For Toddlers | Toddler Information and Articles How to support your child's learning JODIE BENVENISTE Our children are little learning machines - every day, and in almost every way, they're learning.

When it Comes to Challenging Behaviors, Do You Take the Time to C.A.R.E.? | Not Just Cute When children present us with their most challenging behaviors, it’s easy to fixate on what they’re doing that gets under our skin. We claim the behavior as the source of our frustration: he throws tantrums / she won’t listen / they constantly argue. But change rarely comes by focusing only on the symptoms. Some of you just read that phrase and thought, “Source of the behavior? A Little Detective Work I grew up watching Perry Mason with my parents during Dad’s lunch break, and Murder She Wrote with my Mom and Grandma on Sunday nights. Sometimes a story that seemed to point one direction would suddenly take a turn on one tiny detail, and immediately the whole picture became clear. Sometimes the source of our child’s difficult behavior is staring us right in the face. When we have a hard time figuring out the source of the behavior, it can help to take a look at all the other pieces of the puzzle to see if they help to create a clearer picture. {Print your own CARE form here.} Cause Action
