From A to Z - Montessori Toy and Gift Guide

There are so many fun Montessori inspired gift lists available. I'm adding with just a little bit of A to Z fun! I challenged myself to think of a couple of things from each letter of the alphabet that would be perfect for a Montessori home. This is a combination of toys and practical life materials that would be fun to have at home. 

I included things that are simple, realistic, challenge children to develop their senses, and isolate concepts where possible. Many are also open ended or games for fun connection with a child. 

I have included at least two ideas for each letter, one that trends a little younger (0-3 years) and one that trends a bit older (3-9 years). I've tried to include an age range for each to help you decide what might appeal to your child.
