Catching up

Here are some other activities we've been up to in the last little while. Kind of a backlog of activities from the past few weeks before I started this blog. I've had this Pringles can around for a while thinking it could be made into something cool and I finally figured it out. I just cut a slit in the lid all the way across and covered it with tape and then used about seven 2pence coins. They're quite tricky to get in and she has to push a bit and then she takes the lid off and takes them all out. This one is very popular at the moment.
Lacing chopsticks is also very popular at the moment. She gets them out numerous times throughout the day.

Color tablets matching. I've used the idea from other blogs of making them with paint color samples. I especially like all of these activities because they cost nothing to make!!

Nice pictures, and you are doing some great activities. Another idea for the pringles tube is to cut it to be about 2-3 inches long, and then have the child push large pom poms (or soft balls) through. When the tube is long enough to hold several, it is delightful to push one into one end, and see another come out another end.

Montessori is a great way for children to learn!
