Meaningful Homeschool Décor: Story and Tutorial


The new (home)school year is about to begin and many of us are not only thinking about curriculum, but we are also thinking about room setups and decorations. This can be exciting and cumbersome at the same time. 

I personally love to change things around every once in a while, but I am also happy when a big project is done. I am sure you know what I mean. Well, this post is about one piece of decoration for our homeschool that I decided to make myself. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to make your own, too.

Essential Oils that have worked for us: Cough

My personal essential oil testimonial from last night:
My 4-year old son suddenly got a cough before bed. I thought he had swallowed something that went down the wrong way or maybe he had swallowed some pool water that irritated his throat. Who knows? 
The problem is that the cough kept bothering him. It was persistent and I could tell that it was getting a bit worse as the night progressed. 
By 1am, he was coughing every minute. He wasn't able to sleep well because of it. 
I took out the big guy: ImmuPower (essential oil blend by Young Living) and started diffusing it. 
Keep on reading to learn what else I used that had an almost instant effect.

Montessori Sensorial: Fabric Box

This is a simple and yet profound lesson. It is easy to make your own at home. Simply find different textures in fabric that you don't use/need anymore and cut two matching squares out of each texture. Try to get at least 8 different textures.

Setup (so easy): mat and fabric box
