Montessori moment.


This is how I got 10 minutes to sweep the kitchen floor. I sat her in her chair with two small bowls, some sugar puffs and a spoon, and showed her transferring between bowls. She was engrossed. Sure, some of them went in her mouth, and some of them went on the floor, but that just meant this next.

  4. Ah yes, excellent! And you didn’t have to buy special bowls, spoons, or contents either!
    (have just received montessori equipment from MIL, I’m sorry, I like much of it, but do I need a special frame with buttons to do up?)


    • There is a reason for that. It’s to isolate the task, and allow for specific practice. You are supposed to demonstrate the action required. And there is a sense of achievement when they’ve undone and done all the buttons. I know it’s odd, but it works. (Oh to receive Montessori equipment! We make do here sadly.)

  5. Oh I’m going to traipse your blog for more of these tips… My 1 yo needs games like this to let me get on with things šŸ˜‰
