I’ve never bothered or thought that I should bother with a lot of the Montessori practical life equipments, as they are mostly as you go and as you grow up kind of activities that I think really don’t need to be set up or prepared so much at home, as they do in a school setting. This thinking is slowly changing when I see these really frugal, prolific, creative mamas churning out really crafty ideas like this one:

An original idea from Chasing Cheerios, it’s good to have kids playing and refining their motorskills, while learning to button up all in one go!

Oh, and I love this alphabet bean bags, with velcroed pictures to match them with! 🙂

sorting for the 0-6 year olds, and maybe the 6-12 age group can make these themselves!
