Here are 5 components for creating that Montessori learning environment right in your Toddler's back yard.

1. Create a safe space for your toddler to move! That way your little one will have freedom within safe boundaries.





2. Provide large motor drama play with, for example, people-powered toy "vehicles," a DIY tunnel, a balance saucer, extra long scarves and beautiful rainbow ribbons.




3. Set up water play in an ordinary plastic storage bin for sensory learning. Store water play manipulatives in hanging mesh bags.



4. Have a child-size picnic table for snacks where your toddler can practice Practical Life skills, such as pouring her own drinking water and spreading peanut butter on her cracker "by herself."



5. Keep Montessori-style "works" on an outdoor shelf so that your Toddler can choose her own manipulative activities to practice small motor skills and develop eye-hand coordination. 









"It has been understood...that the best means of invigorating the child is to immerse him in nature." Maria Montessori, The Montessori Method
