Montessori Winter Activities

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

I am excited to bring to you 30+ Montessori Winter Activities today!!  Children love fun with snowmans and snowflakes and snowballs — and why not create some beautiful trays for them or opportunities to discover their senses or read a wonderful book?  All of these activities encourage your child to succeed, to probe, to create and learn, to respect, to discover.

“If education is always to be conceived along the same antiquated lines of a mere transmission of knowledge, there is little to be hoped from it in the bettering of man’s future.”  Maria Montessori


The activities listed will cover the four Montessori principles of Language, Mathematics, Practical Life, and Sensorial.
