Montessori at home

This week we made a fun little game using coloured sticks. Theo is a very visual child, and he likes puzzles and recognising objects so I thought this would be perfect for him.


First we had to paint our sticks which was a fun task in itself, then once dry I made a shape using a set of sticks, then I asked Theo to copy it on his own tray.


He managed the simple shapes really well, so I decided to see how he'd get on with different patterns of colours and shapes.</>



I was really impressed with the way he worked it out and it's amazing to see his logic develop! We tried a few more different combinations and tried out making letters too. </>
