Math Boards are one of my favorite things about Waldorf homeschooling. Even our neighborhood kids like to play with it. One day we want to make a giant 100 peg one! A girl can dream 🙂
The math board is used by skip counting with the yarn form peg to peg. As you go around the board lovely geometric shapes appear!

What a fun experience! This little baby boy is a gift for my son. He’s my first attempt at a Waldorf inspired sculpted art doll. The face is made in a similar way to a more traditional Waldorf doll, but then the face is sculpted using thread and wool felting. Once the skin fabric was sewn on he really came to life! Given how enjoyable it was to work on this face, I know there will be many more to come
I will prepare tutorial to help you make one as well. Hope to have it ready soon 🙂

Soon I will make a tutorial on Waldorf Dolls. They are magical to play with and very therapeutic to make.

Oobleck is a wonderful and very messy activity. You can grab it fast and it seems solid, then let it turn into a liquid and drip between your fingers. In a warm climate like ours, we let it dry outside and rehydrate it the next day. In cooler areas it might mold if you leave it out.
It has always been a dream of mine to find a source for past-its-expiration-date cornstarch so that we can fill a small kiddy pool with Oobleck and walk on it! A girl can dream.
1 Cup water
2 Cups cornstarch
a few drops food coloring
Mix together and play!
Recently I put together a random art bin for the kids to use anytime. It defiantly needs to be organized better, but for now it is working wonderfully. I just put some supplies I don’t mind them using anytime, including some scraps and even recyclables.
I highly recommend it.
We made these little coloring pages/paper dolls for the kids in our homeschool group. It was so fun I thought I’d share. Feel free to download these to give out to your valentines 🙂
We decided to dye our new play silks using natural dyes. We used a lovely golden turmeric, berries for the pink/purple color and our beautiful pink was from beets. Continue reading “Using natural dyes to color play silks”
This was such a fun project! We actually did this last year, but I am posting it now.
My daughter drew a picture for us to turn into a little felt doll for her cousin.
I cut it out and she did most of the sewing. I’m so in love with the way it turned out.
To me, this is haven. My family, sunshine, music and delicious vegan banana ice cream. These cones are not raw 🙂 but they are gluten-free. We make the ice cream by blending frozen bananas with some vanilla and chocolate chips. SO yummy.
After eating, our son turned his daddy into a faithful steed
The idea of the tree change dolls my sister-in-law showed me was too irresistible.
I really had to try it. This was very therapeutic, I highly recommend trying it yourself.
This one looks creepy, but it is the blank faces after I cleaned to paint off with Acetone.
