The day has finally arrived for us to share our Harry Potter project with you! I kid you not that this love affair could go on forever. An unending list of crafts and educational ideas because we have loved every second of this and would welcome so much more. I have no doubt that we will continue to filter Harry Potter into most of the things we do for the foreseeable future but for now, I have compiled our favourite of all of the tasks undertaken and put together a complete Harry Potter curriculum for you to enjoy with your little ones. We have been swept up in a whirlwind of spells and potions which has reignited my old passion for all things Harry Potter. I loved reading the books and watching the movies when they were first released but it has become all the more magical seeing my two absorbed into the wizarding world of Harry Potter. We have strolled down the corridors of Hogwarts, been bowled over by the snitch and produced potions that Snape himself would be proud of. We have covered history, English, maths, creativity, science, art, design, sensory play, geography and engineering. This project has […]
I just had to share this with you guys. I have found this amazing free printable site where you can source loads of amazing colouring sheets and activities for your little ones totally free! I’m sure most of you have heard of Crayola. (We are not sponsored by them. Unfortunately 😉) We have always used their art materials. The kids especially love these pens which are an absolute staple in our unschooling arsenal and so I was super excited to find their site. There are lots of ways to browse the site. Under the section colouring pages and crafts, you will find lots of amazing freebies from colouring and activity sheets to art techniques and DIY craft ideas. I was blown away by the number of choices there were and you can even search by holidays and project ideas too! We use an HP Envy printer at home and thanks to their Instant Ink service we save a fortune on our printing costs. From as little as £1.99 per month you can print our 50 full colour A4 pictures, even full photos! Aside from the monetary savings it’s time-saving too. With literally no input from me the printer knows when […]
Wow! Have we had a colourful month or what?! It has been so much fun. We have had the chance to get away a lot this month and with it has brought a diverse and plentiful set of opportunities for education. There is nothing more freeing than staying in a new environment and having only a pen and paper for resources. It forces you to rely on the world around you to inspire, create and learn from. So without further ado, I bring you the answers to this month’s questions. What did the kids learn that I didn’t teach them? Well, there is so much to choose from this month. As I previously mentioned we had the chance to go away this month. We got the chance to stay in a tiny house with relatives and simply living in that environment taught us all so much. We had to practice compromise, respect, sharing and kindness. The kids learnt how to be quiet when someone was sleeping or working, they learnt to share what small amount of things they had and adapted to the new sounds of the nighttime world around them. Aside from all of these compassionate moments they learnt […]
