Land and Water Form Cabinet
Premium Leaf Cabinet
I have been working a step at a time to make my own Geometric Cabinet. The way I’ve been making them has been working well, but the space issue has been a problem. And I wasn’t really looking forward to Drawer 4, which would include making regular polygons from a pentagon (5 equal sides) to a decagon (10 equal sides).
I also did a DIY version of the Land and Water Forms – forming them in the backyard using sand and water. Again, that has worked well, but it would be nice to have them available year round, and on a regular basis for the children to repeat the work whenever they desired.
The Botany Cabinet (called Leaf Cabinet in this case) is one I had decided to skip with my children, but would love to do it if I was given the cabinet.
So I worked persistently in trying to win one of these! This was one of those contests where you could earn extra entries by tweeting (I started a Twitter account just for this purpose), voting for Living Montessori Now on Picket Fence, naming an Alison’s product you would like, etc. I daily took advantage of as many of those options as I could. I felt kind of silly doing it EVERY day. I mean, I NEVER win these things, so I should be doing more productive things!
But I won!!! The first thing I saw when I pulled up e-mail this morning was a CONGRATULATIONS e-mail from Deb Chitwood, the face behind Living Montessori Now. I will soon be the proud owner of that gorgeous Geometric Cabinet!!! WOO-HOOO!!!!!!!!! 🙂
I’ll post pics of Drama Queen working with it after it arrives! I told her about it over breakfast this morning, and she’s almost as excited as me!
I’m rather giddy this morning. Can you tell? 😉
