Are you looking for some cheap, fun, and easy activities that support learning for your toddler?
You’ve come to the right place. Every week I’m sharing 1-2 Montessori based activities that you can create and share with your toddlers.
Check out my first post here for an explanation of why Montessori works, as well as two other activities for your toddler.
Below are links to the rest of my activities:
Go check them out and tell me what you think!
1. Pom Poms & Easter Eggs
Materials: colored Easter eggs, pom poms, egg carton, clothes pin, and small container.
For this activity, you could modify it by changing how they place the pom poms into the eggs. I used a clothes pin, but you could use tongs or spoons, or tweezers.
2. Beach Play-dough
Materials: 1-2 batches of beach play-dough (recipe here), seashells, play-dough mat, and containers for the seashells and play-dough.
This play-dough is made from beach sand, flour, salt, cream of tartar, vegetable oil, glycerin, and boiling water. I found that I had to use a lot more flour than the recipe called for, so just keep that in mind.
These seashells were purchased at the dollar tree.
There are 3 varieties of shells here.
My daughter isn’t at the age where she could make a sandcastle with the play-dough, but she loved making prints with the shells.
Isn’t that cool?
Here she is at work.
I used some plastic containers for the play-dough, and a mason jar for the seashells.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and I invite you to join me next week for another Montessori activity for your toddler.
