Montessori Friendly Toys at 7 Months

Teddy is growing so quickly I can hardly believe it! The last couple months have been an explosion of movement for Teddy and an explosion of teeth! And those two things have really driven him to his favorite things. He is army crawling all over the place, rocking on his hands and knees, went from no teeth to 4, and can explore large parts of the house on his own.

Here is a look at some of the things we included on his shelves at 7 months. Those marked with * were his favorites. 

Flip Fingers - I loved that it made him stretch and reach with one hand, he loves watching them spin 

Large OBall* - he love to shake

Como Tomo Teether* - The best teether ever 

Stacking Cups - I only included the smallest two which he liked to pull apart, but never got to the point in putting them back together 

Treasure Baskets* - absolute favorite, he just loved chewing on all the metal (and recently added brushes)

Drum - great for banging on

Rubber Ball* - He didn't really use this for movement, but it really is an excellent teether

Sensory bottles - these are just an old DIY with some glitter in a bottle and the lid glued shut

Haba Rattles (similar, similar) - these are great for shaking and for mouthing 

Mirror Balls - these are just so fun

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. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. 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. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
