Week By Week Activities for Young Babies - Montessori Baby Week 24

Somehow another 12 weeks with Theodore has zoomed by and he is now 5 months old! I can't really believe it to be honest. Life is moving so quickly with him that he feels like he's been her for just a minute while I also struggle to remember what life was like without his sweet presence. Teddy is such a beautiful soul. He's a content baby but more serious than some of my others. Right now he is moving all over the place, rolling and inch-worming himself along. 


Over these weeks, we have tried to engage Teddy in a variety of sensory, practical, and language activities naturally throughout our days. Most of his days are just spent at home, on the floor, learning to move. It's a joy to watch him and share some of what we have been up to. When looking at this list just know that this is one possible activity to do that week, not the only thing we did, and based on Teddy's own interests. Always remember to follow your child's own interests, skills, and needs. 

Here are activities from 13 to 24 weeks:

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

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! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. 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, bu

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
