Farm, Zoo, & Ocean Animal Sensory Bottles for Babies and Toddlers

I love creating new activities for my grandbaby. Today, I want to share ideas for simple sensory bottles for babies and toddlers using miniature farm animals, zoo animals, and ocean animals. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. I could have prepared sensory bottles for my granddaughter, Zoey, before she was 11 months old. I didn’t partly because she loved her Montessori-inspired mini discovery boxes, and I appreciated that they fit into her hand so well. Zoey was also obsessed with learning to walk and then with large-motor skills involved in walking and running. When she was showing a lot of interest in animals and focusing again on fine-motor activities, I decided to create sensory bottles with an animal theme. If you worry about keeping up with the activities needed for a baby or toddler, I think you typically need fewer than you’d expect. I usually […]

Montessori Monday – Montessori-Inspired Phonics Activities Using Dots {Free Printables}

I had a lot of fun with my post today, finding free printables for phonics activities using wooden dots. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Spielgaben. All opinions are honest and my own. This post also contains affiliate links (at no cost to you). The wooden dots used in this post are from the complete Spielgaben set. The wooden dots are called points in the Spielgaben literature, although I’ve also seen them referred to as dots or small circles. In case you’re not familiar with Spielgaben toys, they are exceptionally high-quality educational toys designed for ages 3-12. They come with over 1,000 pages of supplementary learning materials that help you as a parent or teacher easily use Spielgaben toys educationally with your child and/or students. All of the instructional materials are digital PDFs that can be printed out or viewed on any device. Special Deal […]
