Basic Montessori Finds + More on Etsy

Montessorish Etsy Finds February at How we Montessori

"Some objects are rapidly mass-produced by press or machine and are exactly alike. Others are made slowly by hand, and each is different from the other. The value of handmade objects is that each carries the individual imprint of the artist who created it." - Maria Montessori, The Child in the Family. 

Yes, there are so many reasons to love handmade! When I think of the basic materials for a Montessori home, I think low shelving and small baskets! Here are a few of my favourite Montessori and other finds on Etsy:

  • Etsy is a great place to find baskets! I love this entire store, these sisal baskets are small but super cute, suitable for lots of uses in the Montessori home! 
  • "The things he sees are not just remembered; they form a part of his soul." - Maria Montessori quote print, this is an instant download. 
  • Handmade infant/toddler shelves!!! Yes! There are really similar to our shelves in Australia that I get asked about all of the time. This store has other children's/Montessori style furniture and is handmade in the US. 
  • Colour matching game. This looks good for toddlers but I also wanted to give this store a shout out for their lovely tag blankets and crinkle blankets, that we have and Otto loves, they are really well made. 
  • Flower stickers. I don't know what I would do with them but I really love these stickers and the herb and fruit stickers. Perhaps matching or putting in a nature journal, the child could put a sticker in the journal once they find the flower?? 
  • First Signs of Spring Poster. Thinking of Spring in February is just bizarre, but we are indeed watching for all of these signs. This poster is gorgeous. While I love photography for realistic images, there is something really captivating about these whimsical style illustrations. 

I cannot wait to have some quiet time with my children, hopefully, tomorrow we can take a long walk around our local nature reserve. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
