Montessori Toddler Play 24 months

Some of Beans activities from the past month, seem to be a little short on pictures unfortunately. 1) Montessori knobbed cylinders – I have only introduced set 1 and 2 at the moment.  I love that he will sit and repeat putting them in and taking them out for a good 15 – 20 minutes. […]

The best days…

Although the weather is still a little chilly we have been lucky to have a run of blue skies and sunshine.  I absolutely love seeing my biggies choosing to go outside and I have abandoned many plans to give them the freedom to just ‘be’ in the garden.  Wildlife has been found and observed, tepees constructed, […]
