I loved spending time visiting our Montessori schoolroom. B attending Christian Montessori School at Lake Norman 3 days a week. This week was Teacher Appreciation Week. I volunteered to help the kids paint a stool and flower-pot for our teacher. My 25-month-old thought it was pretty cool to have mom at school. He was not happy when I had to leave – only to return a few hours later. All the toddlers enjoyed the painting activities. They loved being outside and getting messy. The paints washed off easily. Fingerprint flowers were a big hit and easy for the toddlers to manage. Then, I couldn’t help explore the toddler room. I always get inspired seeing new activities. I especially loved the “around the house” items, such as an old phone and keyboard. Don’t throw away your keyboard! It’s a perfect toy! I hope these pictures give you some good ideas for spring and/or activities around your Montessori-inspired home!
