Smiling like Sunshine: Montessori activities for my 5 year old

Montessori activities for my 5 year old

I realised that I haven't shared any Montessori inspired activities that we do with my 5 year old daughter for quite a while. 

We had a handmade geo board but I recently bought this. Great for fine motor skills and Defne enjoys creating patterns.

 I bought this lovely puzzle for 2 pounds during Chrtistmas sale. The inside  puzzle is okay but the outside puzzle is quite tricky. But we love challenges!

Transferring nuts using a spoon (for my 2 year old)

                       Transferring almonds using a clip handle tea strainer. Defne enjoyed it so much!

                                             These velcro shapes are great to form numbers!

Sensory play with jelly (gorgeous color and smell!)


  1. I love that apple puzzle! I bet my son (20 mo.) could start transfering the nuts into a dish like that...thanks for sharing your ideas! Pinning them so I remember to try them out! :)

  2. Süper.
    İlk aktiviteye bayıldım.
    For my 5 yerars old girl.


  3. Yes, perfect for fine motor skills and making patterns. Love the rubber band one. Brings back memories.

  4. I love the tea strainer transferring and that puzzle looks great. I've pinned this!

  5. What a great collection of activities! I especially like the sensory play with jelly!

  6. Love all the Montessori ideas! Will be tweeting!

  7. I love the rubberband board, and the sensory play with jelly looks nice and messy! Thanks for sharing these neat ideas.

  8. Those velcro shapes look awesome! So tactile, too. Thanks for sharing with us at the Kids Co-Op this week. :)

  9. Lovely idea. Where do you get the velcro pieces and elastic band board from?

    Love the idea of Jelly play!
