Montessori activities for toddlers (2)

Derin (17 months) has been showing a great interest in such activities these days.
Transferring pompoms from one bowl to another, good for fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Transferring straws from one jar to another.

We have a cylinder tin box of crayons and he loves taking the crayons out and then putting them back in. He will spend ages doing this if I let him, however I fear that he might harm his eyes with these long and sharp crayons so I thought this might be a safer alternative.

Water transfer using a sponge

He is a very active boy and these days I find it really hard to engage my children in a common play or activity. Thanks to these Montessori activities which he really concentrates on, I get to do something together with my daughter ;)
