I have something so fun to share with you today! I recently discovered the new subscription boxes from Montessori For Every Child and I placed an order as soon as I could.
The subscription boxes have been designed by Harshitha who is a qualified Montessori teacher and parent, right here in Sydney. Yes, this is a subscription box based in Australia! 🇦🇺
The subscription boxes are designed for children from 2.5 years to seven years. I've used the subscription boxes with my four-year-old and there was a lot he could do. Some of the activities can be adapted depending on your child's age. Otto isn't ready for three-part cards so we use the three-part cards for matching. The contents are easy to store in the box provided and the boxes can be used by the child for years!
It doesn't matter if your child is homeschooled or goes to a Montessori or Non-Montessori school. It doesn't matter if you are new to Montessori or experienced, you can use this subscription box with your child. Each subscription box comes with a clear guide on how to use the materials and requires no previous Montessori knowledge!!
The boxes are great value and can save you a lot of time. The Montessori For Every Child subscription boxes are packed with interesting activities, including three-part cards and crafts with all the materials required provided. The materials are professionally printed and cut to size. If you've ever printed and cut out Montessori materials, you know how much time it takes! All you need to do is open the box and the activities are ready to go!
We've used the Australian Bird box and the Oceans box. The next theme for September is Flowers. These are all relevant and important topics that children love. You can see a full list of what is provided for the September box here.
Let's take a look at how we used some of the materials. Please keep in mind I've only shown a small portion of what is in the subscription boxes. First, we used the Bird subscription box.
First, we went bird watching.
Otto could tick the birds that he found. An older child could count how many of each bird they found and add other types of birds.
I love 'Parts Of' cards, and I love that I don't have to print and cut the cards myself. For a prereader, we do this activity together.
Lifecycle of a bird materials, a control card is also provided.
We used the three-part cards for object to card matching (full three-part cards are provided in the subscription box). The model birds are our own. This is a wonderful language lesson. Although Otto is a prereader, he recognises many of the letters and knows the names of the birds.
Otto is making the bird craft, these are bird mobiles.
We also tried the Oceans subscription box.
This is the Parts of a Sea Turtle work. The model turtles are our own. ❤️🐢
For the sewing cards, I needed to cut out the shapes and punch the holes, but thread and a child-safe needle was provided.
Again we used the three-part cards for object to card matching (full three-part cards are provided in the subscription box). Model animals are our own.
Love these Jellyfish Lifecycle cards!
