Learning how to pour water from a kid-sized jug is a great practical Montessori activity. And what better way to learn (and keep the floors dry) by being out in nature.

One of the basic tenets of the Montessori philosophy which we are following at home is the #preparedenvironment. This is where shelving, chairs, tables, learning materials, etc. are carefully designed and strategically arranged to accommodate the child. #Montessori #prepared environment #montessoriathome #parentingquotes

MC’s prepared environment is set up so he can choose, work, play & explore independently. One of his fave activities is the #FisherPrice Baby's toy sorter. I simplified it by removing the bucket and placing the lid on a tray with one of each shape which he sorts. By building this control of error into the activity he can clearly see when the activity is complete and self correct. Therefore aiding his independence and problem solving skills. #montessori #fatfridays #activitiesfortoddlers
