Welcome to Montessori Mondays!
Are you looking for some cheap, fun, and easy activities that support learning for your child?
You’ve come to the right place. Every week I’m sharing Montessori based activities that you can create and share with your children.
Check out my first post here for an explanation of why Montessori works.
-Blue Foam Sheet: Purchased at Michael’s, and cut to fit the tray
-Sand: Purchased at the Dollar Tree
-Plastic Plant: Purchased at Michael’s, and cut to size
-Ocean Animals: Purchased at Michael’s
-Water paper: Purchased at Michael’s
-Mod Podge: Purchased at the Dollar Tree
-Rocks: Purchased at the Dollar Tree
-Hot Glue: Used to make the cave for the octopus
I used a bunch of rocks and hot glue to create a small cave for the sea creatures.
There are two different parts of this habitat. This part is the coral reef where you find starfish, clownish, seahorses, divers, etc.
For the coral reef I wanted to add seaweed. After adding the sand with mod podge, I cut the plastic plants to a smaller size. Then I poked a hole for each one with a toothpick, inserted the plant, and hot glued the backside to keep the plants in place.
The deep water was the other part of this habitat. I just used mod podge and some water paper. The more wrinkled this paper looks by the end, the better.
