Montessori Friendly Materials Under Our Tree in 2017

I wasn’t specifically going to write about what my kids got for Christmas this year, because I simply ran out of time before the holiday. But, I went on Instagram and did a live video recently about the books that my children received this year. And, I got so many direct-messages asking me to write a post about what my children received.

So, here’s a look at a few of the Montessori friendly materials my kids had under the tree this year. The good thing about doing this after the holiday is that I can share their most favorite choices!

Books

I have been collecting books over the last couple of months to give  to the kids at Christmas. These were all just in one large box marked for everyone. 

Toys and Materials

Montessori friendly favorites from the 2017 holiday season

Microscope (Henry) | Chalkboard (all) | Space magnets (Henry) | Lyra color pencils (Nora) | Sewing box and tools (Nora) | Fraction Cubes (Nora) | Science Kit (Henry) | Mini-Baby Doll (Gus) | Rainstick (Gus) | Hand Drill (Henry) | Hand Mixer (Nora) | Wooden Stacking Cups (Gus) 

We really tried not to go too overboard this year with gifts and we struck a really nice balance. I have a hard time keeping it under control, so it was a victory for me more than anything!

Games

Max (all) | Fraction Formula (Henry) | Zitternix (Nora) | Uno (Henry) 


We are a huge game-playing family. It’s really our answer to not using screens. Cooperative games, in particular, are really popular with my kids.

Now, this isn't everything my kids received and they have other favorites. These are just the highlights! For reference Henry is 6.75, Nora is 3.5, and Gus just turned 1. 

What were your children's favorites from the holidays this past year?
