Montessori Friendly Finds I Wish I Could See at IKEA

You guys know how much I love IKEA, right? Well, it's been a hot minute since I've been able to go to IKEA with the Covid-19 crisis. Actually, it's been a minute since I've been to ANY store. I'm longing for the days of wandering around IKEA and exploring all that there is to see!

Well, it's starting to lead me to do a little more window shopping lately. And I decided I might as well share some of the cool looking Montessori friendly products I would love to be able to see in person. And, here are a few things I've found:

Montessori friendly finds for children and homes from IKEA.

Gardening Tool Set - I immediately love the large ring they are on, it makes me wonder if these would be small enough to give to my children. The ring would make it so easy to store outside on the garden fence!

Watering Can - hands down my favorite kid sized watering cans, I don't actually need a new one I just love this color

Washcloths - I love the sweet little rabbits on these, I actually can't get enough washcloths not that Teddy is eating solids! 

Quilted Baby Blanket - another super cute baby textile

Carpet Beater - I can imagine some fun practical life opportunities and some cleaner entry rugs with this! 

Board Book - I would love to see the inside of this 

Rattan Basket - I would love to see the size in person and feel this, I can imagine lots of possibilities for this

Baby Blanket - how sweet is this!?

Small Pots - I would love to add some of these to the kids new outdoor area so they can explore planting random things they find without taking up my bigger pots 

Tablet Stand - this would actually be perfect for organizing Henry's school area 

Sand Toys - These look like the perfect little set for summer 

Meet the Tiger Book - my big kids would be so thrilled to read this

Folding Mattress - I wonder if this could be used as a Nugget-like play item!?

Whiteboard - this would also be perfect for organizing Henry's homeschool area!

Skinny Cart - this might be a great alternative to the larger cart for organizing art supplies in smaller spaces! 

I'm sure there are so many other great things that I would stumble upon while walking around IKEA while sipping my favorite lemonade icee. And, I can't wait to do so when it's safe. But until that time, I hope this was as fun a window shopping experience for you as it was for me!

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.
