What is even cuter than baby feet? 
These barefoot sandals are my new obsession!
I love everything about them: 
searching for the perfect pattern on the internet/ creating a new pattern/ collecting fine materials/ 
crocheting using the smallest crochet hook I've ever seen/ 
admiring tiny sandals/ kissing baby feet/ share them with you!

As a mother with a crafter's soul, I anticipate the moment my daughter will be interested in knitting.
Montessori teached me to follow the child. So I understand that introducing this activity is not about the age of the child, it's all about their interests. 
When it comes to young children - preschoolers who want to knit, the first activity we present is single finger knitting, followed by finger knitting or knitting with looms and spools.
So I learned myself single finger knitting and spent some happy hours making bracelets
I also analyzed the procedure into simple steps in order to be able to present it to my child and I made this tutorial.
Why I am so happy to present you this activity: 
1. This is engaging to young kids, building their concentration and their self-confidence
2. They actually make something they can wear or keep
3. This is relaxing for grown-ups, too!

This classic Montessori mobile is simple yet beautiful.
It moves smoothly in the tiniest breeze and won't overstimulate the infant.

We introduce it to the baby at 5 weeks.
We present it when the baby is calm, well fed and aware.

Making this mobile was easy and fun- the best part is how much Lydia enjoys it!
