Creating Montessori Activities for My Little One...

I came across the blog, Chasing Cheerios a few days ago and was absolutely thrilled at the huge number of wonderful activities Melissa has posted (if you want to look for them quickly, go to the labels section on the side and click Montessori)! After browsing around for awhile, I set to work to fill our little cart up with ten different "games" for our daughter to try. Starting from the top shelf I have sorting shapes and jars and lids. On the second shelf there is pouring beans, water transfer with a sponge, and bead stringing. Our third shelf holds color matching and ice cube transfer. The last shelf has a puzzle 2D/3D matching, and sorting rubber bands by color (red, yellow, and blue).

I literally spent $5 on this project (I wanted to get the pill box and hair bands for the color matching activity) and our daughter is THRILLED with the different activities. She sits on the couch or at the table (depending on the activity). I model the activity and she does it for as long as she wants. When she's done, we put it away and take out the next one and so on until she wants to do something else.

I think that you'll like this blog! Check it out!

Thank you so much for posting this link! These activities will be great for my 2 1/2 year old to do while my older children do their schoolwork.

Looks good! I need some new "work" for our Montessori shelves. I'll be sure to check this out more carefully.
