Friday I asked my toddler’s teacher what kind of lessons she likes the most at school right now, because I am setting up some Montessori style activities for her this summer.
She told me three things: homemade play dough with flour mixing, bead stringing and paper cutting.
That evening we were making homemade pizzas so I divided up some dough for the girls, and even my seven-year-old came running to join in the fun. All sitting around the “tiny table” as my toddler calls it, they played with dough and flour for a good thirty minutes.
For this summer, I’ll leave this lesson on our shelves as one that can be chosen at anytime.
