Our Easter Baskets 2021

I've had such a hard time with Easter this year! I don't quite know why but it's felt like such a long way off. Then, I looked at the calendar and it's only a couple weeks away. Cue a little bit of panic and a little bit of pulling my lists together. I anticipate that we will still mostly be at home this spring/summer so I'm thinking about what kinds of things would be helpful to make that the most fun. 


Here's a little look at our Easter Basket lists for this year. In addition to what's listed, I usually add some sidewalk chalk and bubbles to the basket along with some sweet treats.

Teddy (18-months)

Little Wagon - We have no little outside pull toys, so I think this will be perfect for a busy summer in our garden
Helmet - Ted is starting to ride toys, and I anticipate he will be on a bike by summer, so he needs some protection

Gus (4-years)

Geoboard - I think Gus will love this, and it's great finger work. 
Treasure Jar - Nora and Gus will each get one jar from this set. They are constantly collecting so many things and I just think this is a beautiful way to display. I think I'll fill with some candy in the basket. 
Scented Twist-Up Crayons - Just a fun art supply, Gus loves some smelly gel pens the big kids had. 

Nora (6-years)

Grimms House - Another little lovely creative Grimms piece for our collection. Nora loves this type of open ended play. 
Treasure Jar - Again, she will get one jar. 
Neon Watercolors - A twist on the normal watercolor paint we usually have. 

Henry (10-years)

Illustrated Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Adding to Henry's collection of illustrated H.P. books. 
Lego Budgie - this combines three of Henrys favorite things - the color yellow, birds, and Lego! 
Metallic Color Pencils - just another fun art supply. 

And, that's it! I hope you find some inspiration here. If you need more ideas for Easter Baskets, check out my post Easter Baskets for Montessori Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers Updated 2021 |  Our Easter Baskets 2018 | Easter Basket Ideas 2020

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

Our Family's Montessori Christmas Gift Lists 2021

It's really a good time to observe them, see what they are interested in and what they might be ready for during this coming year.
