Montessori Friendly Gift Ideas for 3 Years and Older (2017)

Monday, November 20, 2017

I would like to make this post brief and to the point.  We don’t have a lot of toys at home, so I only have a short list.  I called this list “Montessori friendly” because these are toys that my kids would actually play on a regular basis.  To get the best of toys for your kids, it is better that you are aware of what they really really like and what makes them happy.

So to give you ideas on what my kids love to play at home scroll down below to check them out.

Montessori Friendly Gift Ideas for 3 Years and Older (2017)

Favorite Activities at 43 months

Here are Vito’s favourite things to do when he’s at home and not playing with Mavi outdoors. Most of these activities promotes independent play minimal supervision, improves fine motor skills, vocabulary, hand-eye coordination, creativity and discovery through play.

Hape Domino Set

Monday, June 5, 2017

Have you heard of the Domino Set by I Love Hape?  This toy is just awesome!  I got it early this year to teach Mavi how to strategically design a game, basically a maze made by dominoes.  Now that Vito is older, we decided to share this with Vito so he will learn how use it and enjoy the fun of creating dominos.  And oh boy, this has been Vito’s favourite for the past few days!

Creativity with Shape Mags (Stick N Stack)

Friday, June 3, 2016

Vito is 30 months old.

I bought this amazing product when we went to the US last month.  We have Magnatiles and we love it, but the problem is we can’t really make something more out of those squares and triangles. When I came across Stick N Stack in Amazon and read good reviews, I just needed to buy those beautiful window tiles and carts!   And if you ask me, yes they work really well with Magnatiles!

And since we’re having Transportation Unit, I made Vito create his own cart.  Oh boy, he played with it for hours!!  I asked Mavi to assist his little brother for awhile but later on left when he realized that Vito doesn’t want him for a playmate.
