🐣EGG SAND CASTLES•
.
.
Here is an EASTER invitation to play with kinetic sand! Offer eggs to build "sand castles" and make prints! Your #toddler will LOVE it! Even my 5 yo gave it a try for a good 30 min👍🏻And kinetic sand is amazing 😱Soo moldable yet keeps moving and falling apart as you cut it! Offer scoops, cups and even a kid-friendly knife and you will have a #sensoryplay blast!

Here is a very concrete way to learn about 📐angles! Draw various angles with a pencil ✏️ and offer your child to trace acute with blue, right with red, an obtuse with yellow. Also make angles on a geoboard and make angles from craft sticks and magnets. .

Montessori practical life water transferring activity😂

Craft Sticks PUSH•
.
Happy TODDLER Tuesday! Here is a fun ✂️DIY which took me less than ⏱5 min to set up. Grab a ♻️recycled 📦 box, make incisions with a knife and color with a @sharpie around each hole to match the colors of craft sticks you have. ( Don't have craft sticks? Use ♻️🍡recycled popsicle sticks and place dot stickers on them or color in a dot.) Offer your #toddler to color-match sticks into their corresponding holes. This is an awesome fine motor and 👌🏻hand-👀eye coordination activity, developing dexterity, pincer grip, and bilateral coordination (engaging both sides of the body at the same time ~ for example, the child will have to hold the box with one hand and push a craft stick with the other). Learning to use BOTH 🙌🏻hands together in a coordinated way is actually an important first step in developing a specialized/dominant hand ~ reciprocal movements (using both hands together in an alternating way) in turn leads to strong bilateral coordination! And all that from a 📦and 🍡sticks!!!!
.
.
.

Have little ones? 1 Y+ offer to PULL the sticks OUT which is mush easier than to insert them IN.
.
Ready, Set, GO! 👍🏻
.

As always, I would love to see you trying our activities! Just 🏷tag me @montessorifromtheheart And I will feature YOU in my Stories😘

“It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give to teach child the chance to fulfil his potential possibilities.” - Dr Maria Montessori.

Montessori is not a pedagogy, it's not a set of rules, it's a way of LIVING! Granted it can start at birth, but it needs NOT to! Start when you CAN! Embrace it in part or in whole, live it, do what works for you and your family! How to start? Ignite the love❤️ for Montessori in your little one! These 📚books are just perfect to introduce a story behind a Woman that is changing the way the humanity thinks and acts as we speak... more than 100 years after her birth ! Her visions of world peace that start within the souls of little people, her utmost respect for little humans and her tenant of "following the child" are still as pertinent now and hopefully will be for the generations to come as they were a decade ago!

Happy Montessori Monday!

These 📚books are available at my 🛍Amazon shop under "Montessori Materials" .

#KmartPlayTray set up today is 🐣🐏🐄BABY ANIMALS #smallworldplay (Shop 👆🏻ALL at my Amazon 🛍Store under "2019 Materials"~ link in bio).
.

Do you remember my ocean 🌊 🍝spaghetti set up? Well before tossing the pasta away, I gave it a 🔁new life for a little bit by just adding 💚green food coloring to a Ziploc and mixing it well! .
.
To dye your original batch of pasta, add coloring to the water WHILE cooking  it Thanks to @mothercould for inspiration 😘! ( the benefit ~ Pasta does NOT stain the 🖐🏻hands!!!) ❗️TIPS: rinse with cold water once pasta is cooked and dry with a paper towel. Store in a zip lock in a fridge for a few days before tossing. .
.
⚠️IMPORTANT: I generally use ❌EXPIRED food (or if it fell on the floor, or if it is not suitable for eating), and I am VERY reluctant to use a LOT of edible food! So, open your cupboard and look for food that has passed its 🗓expiration date! . 🙌🏻Now, back to SENSORY play: My motto is: they TOUCH it, they GET it, they MANIPULATE and it goes directly to their BRAIN! Hooray to #sensoryplay 👍🏻Did you know that triggering sensory stimulation fires multiple signals between neurons, which strengthens its connectivity and spurs neuroplasticity ~ aka production of new connections and NEW neurons themselves 😱increasing brain agility 👍🏻~ all that from🙌🏻 tactile stimulation 🙋🏼!!! .
.
.
Offer tongs to transfer pasta and ✂️ scissors to cut it, both of which are awesome fine motor tools!
