Toddler Activity Ideas

1 Comment

Here are a few more activity ideas from our Montessori-inspired shelf.

The pictures show…

– An example of our shelf this week.

– An activity showing one-to-one correspondence.  The child places each bead into the ice-cube tray.  There are exactly enough beads to fill the tray.

– In the next activity the child places fake money into the slot cut out of the yogurt cup.  You can discuss value and math and the child practices fine motor skills.

– In the next activity the child places wooden beads onto pipe cleaners and matches the colors.

– I often put out objects along with words.  I prefer the actual object to pictures of the words.  B doesn’t read the words but we talk about the first letter sounds.

– The next is a puzzle practicing letter sounds.

– The last pictures shows a new toy Nana give B for his birthday.  B loves trucks and any activity where the child practices grip and twisting helps with early writing skills.
