I had a lot of colorful patches on hand that never got usedfor another project. My 3 year old has had a lot of funplaying with them — sorting them (butterflies, flowers,other) and using them with a felt board activity. I evenbring this (and the felt bear activity) on trips in the carand she’ll happily sit and tell stories moving the piecesaround.
Welcome to the Homeschool Den!
Where do things come from cards. I also collected bits and pieces to add to the sorting activity (a cotton ball, a toy sheep and cow, thread, yarn, a wool hat, a piece of paper etc) These Montessori Cards come from Montessori for Everyone and are free at: http://www.montessoriforeveryone.com/assets/PDF/Where_Things_Come_From.pdf
For lack of a better place to put this, I’ll just mention thishere: We gave my daughter an old fishing tackle box (itused to hold my sewing stuff) and she uses it to hold allthose small people/animals etc that kids seem to collect.This has been awesome because it’s easy to clean up andshe can transport it around.
