Here are a few “back to the basics” Montessori Inspired Easter activities. With their lovely colors and texture, we used jelly beans as our base material with which to work, which, in all honesty was a little challenging given their sweet goodness. Keep an almost 3 year old from popping a few in his mouth and I will send you a medal!
I purchased these sweet little pots in the dollar section at Target. So I grabbed a tray, a pair of small tongs (or tweezers would work really well) and a bag of jelly beans. Voila. Great for fine motor skill development.
What I noticed with this organic twist in the exercise is how great the act of picking up the beans, one by one, is for the pincer grip.
Thanks for stopping by my sweet, little blog! I hope we inspired you today! Happy Easter!
