Nora is going through a major sleep regression right now. She's never been a great sleeper and has yet to consistently sleep through the night, but over the past week or so, we've been lucky if we get two hours of sleep in a row. She's up constantly wanting to nurse, or sometimes wanting to play. Throw a dirty diaper and some screeching in for fun.
This morning, Nora was up well before the sun, despite having been awake from 2:30 to 3:30 and several other times through the night. As she toddles around, it' easy for me to forget about what a miracle she is -- how lucky we are to have her here. Sleep or no sleep, she is truly our amazing rainbow baby! Instead of getting cranky or frustrated, I'm going to choose to celebrate her today, to remember just how lucky we are to not be getting any sleep.
So in honor of my rainbow baby, here are some of my favorite Montessori-friendly rainbow themed toys!
Babies: Sensory Balls; DIY Rainbow Sensory Bottles; Ring Stacker; Bead Clutch; Stacking Cups; Gears; Triangle Clutch
Toddlers: Rainbow Stacker; DIY Velcro Block; Puzzle; Nesting blocks; Window blocks; Foam Blocks; Dot Painters; Xylophone
Preschoolers: Magnet Cubes; Colored Pencils; Geometric Solids; Magnatiles; Color Paddles; DIY Xylophone; Rainbow Peg People; Rock Clock
There! I don't know how you can look at these beautiful toys and materials and not be happy. Off to guzzle some coffee and snuggle my rainbow!
Do you have any rainbow materials that you or your children love? I'd love to see them!
