"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.
There are so many reasons to love handmade! Etsy is my favourite source of handmade materials. There is so much knowledge and skill within the Etsy Montessori community. I love all of these items. We have 1-4 put aside for Otto for when he is ready, but all of these are highly desirable!! The sand tray with the card holder would be wonderful and the waterproof work mats are so practical, I wish I could order all of them. Here are a few of my favourite Montessori and other finds on Etsy:
- Montessori Peg Toy Size Discrimination - Heir+Loom Kids.
- First Jigsaw Puzzle for Toddlers - Heir+Loom Kids.
- Set of Two Montessori Cylinder Blocks - Heir+Loom Kids.
- Geoboard for Toddlers - Frank and Bloom.
- Spelling Board for Movable Alphabet - Bless This Homeschool.
- Learn To Tell The Time Clock - Akoko Kids Store.
- Sand Tray with Card Holder - Bless This Homeschool.
- Beautiful Wooden Paint Jar Holder - Wiwiurka.
- Perfect Waterproof Work Mats - Courtesy and Grace.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!!
