Gwynberry Designs

Had a table at a kid clothes swap tonight. Only 2 contacts were made but it was free advertising. I love making diaper cakes and other baby shower items. They are so cute and make people happy. Here are pictures from what I made for the swap.

A bit of Montessori at home

This week we are trying out some Montessori techniques at home to prepare Gwyn for preschool. I really like their ideas, mixing practical skills like pouring water with regular school concepts of letters and numbers. As I type this she is using Play-Doh scissors to practice cutting. That way when I pull out the kid scissors she has the basics down.

Other activities are Pom-Pom sorting, blocks, lacing beads, glueing buttons on shamrock, and various counting games. Check out my Pinterest boards for ideas.
