Most people who know me, know that I love Etsy. Etsy has so many talented sellers and so many Montessori inspired products. We have really enjoyed this land, air and water categorisation quilt that was made by amykuhlcox. As Amy suggested we vary the animals.
Here Caspar is using some Australian animals. I have used this to introduce him to lesser known animals such as the Bilby, Quoll, Numbat, Quokka, Tasmanian Devil (not all pictured here). I change the animals about once a week and this activity remains a favourite.
Amy included nine animals with the quilt. We purchased our model animals from Mini Zoo, they have a great selection of Australian animals.
