Some Montessori Inspiration Lately

Who doesn't love a little Montessori inspiration!? Here are some images from Instagram that have me swooning. One thing I absolutely love about Montessori is that it doesn't have to look the same. There is so much diversity in Montessori spaces, homes, classrooms, and work. Everything is so unique while being perfectly tailored to the needs of the child!

Is there anything better than toddlers cooking? Yes, when the food looks that delicious!

I love this toddler community! It is so bright and airy. The shape of the low shelf is also so inviting.


A shelf in a home! It's so neatly organized, with lovely material choices but still so interesting! And that black and white basket is so cool.


Don't miss this awesome series by my friend Junnifa. She is inviting the Montessori community to make a list of Montessori related ideas/words/concepts from A to Z! It is so much fun to see everyone's answers! 


One of my favorite Montessori toddlers working on an awesome peg board. I love his simple environment.

Another simple shelf at home. I love the clean lines and the use of baskets. Great organization, but still really accessible for a child.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease.

When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over.

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
