Christmas Inspired Works:Montessori Monday

                    Stringing Christmas trees, and poinsettias.
                                                 Pouring buttons.

                              Water pouring. This set was a big hit last year!!

                                               Flour sifting.

                 Transferring cinnamon sticks with tweezers.

             Transferring water using an eyedropper.

   Folding napkins, using the lines as a control of error.

 Sorting buttons by color, this is a bit tricky because it has two shades of red, and two shades of green.

              Sequencing triangels, circles, and squares.

    The Ginngerbread Man bead stair.

I am linking this post to Montessori Monday where you can find tons of wonderfully inspired work, hosted by  One Hook Wonder and Living Montessori Now.
