 For three months we've been immersed in all things hedgehog. For my daughter's annual research paper she chose the pet of her dreams (in hopes I might give in, perhaps!). She spent months writing up and organizing several hundred notecards, which were used to create an extremely informative and very well written paper. I love her Montessori school and how they celebrate the completion of this huge body of work. Each child creates a board on their research topic and memorizes a thorough presentation. 
All of the parents are then invited to a research fair where these brilliant young experts are ready and waiting to give one-on-one lectures about their topic. 
 Of course, a hedgehog accessory was necessary! We made a hedgie rubber stamp (see first pic) and printed it onto linen for a headband just right for the occasion.
 If you have any hedgehog related questions (besides if I will be granting her wish for one!), this lovely girl most likely has a very articulate answer!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love the hedgehog headband! How fun to have an accessory to go along with her presentation.

  2. Congratulations to your daughter and to the school!AriadnefromGreece!

  3. That is so funny you should post this. My daughter is doing her class project guessed it, hedgehogs! She finished the rough draft of the report and sketches and she is now needle felting her hedgie for her diorama. Just made me smile to know another Mom is knee deep in these prickly cuties.
