- Using Real Tools, and
- Montessori Maths Trays.
Keeping your toddler busy while working with your older child/ren is a new challenge we have faced since we made the decision to homeschool. Speaking of home education, you can see how we use Montessori in our homeschooling learning experiences here and here. I also run a homeschool co-op which has Montessori inspired activities. You’re sure to find lots of adaptable DIY Montessori ideas in our Christmas Montessori Activities post, and Christmas Fine Motor Round-up. If your child is celebrating a birthday, I’ve explained the Montessori Celebration of Life and included some free printables. We used this celebration to ring in the New Year.
There are tons of Montessori ideas in my posts on several topics: Australia Day, Frogs and the Frog Life Cycle, The Butterfly Life Cycle, Simple Machines, Magnetism, Constellations, USA & Independence Day, Forensics, Plant Activities, and Backyard Science Lab.

If you are interested in using Montessori inspired printables, I’ve shared my favourite FREE Montessori printables from around the web.
