I don’t have time for a long post of ideas…so I’m trying to get some little people ideas up here for you as I see them. Here’s one of them:
This is the littlest in a kiddie-pool that I bought for $5 and some counting bears and a few bowls. (It’s hard to find kiddie pools out-of-season, but I did a quick check and you can still find inexpensive ones at Amazon…so check around!) She enjoys all sorts of activities in here! It isn’t out all the time – I keep it tucked in our Montessori closet when not in use. I bring it out when I really need the help in offering my toddler a focused activity. I got this fantastic idea first from Mary Ellen Barrett’s article, Toddler School, in the Spring 2010 issue of mater et magistra! For more of Mary Ellen’s fantastic ideas for the littles, grab a cup of tea and listen to her FREE webinar available at Homeschool Connections: Toddler School – How to Prevent Disruption and Destruction and keep the Wee Ones Engaged.
I’ll try to post more of our toddler ideas as I can! Until then, go enjoy Mary Ellen’s great ideas!
