💧Water 🖌️Brushing 🔢 Numbers

If an elephant can paint, then my 2-and-a-half-year-old can water-paint (trace over) the numbers I had written on a blackboard with chalk.

Since this activity involves 💧water, Adrian would put on his Montessori apron (buy here), which affords a toddler complete independence and confidence since there is no fastening, tying, or buttoning involved.

I believe that if you make learning fun, inviting and hands-on, your child is more likely to be engaged in a subject which might otherwise seem not very exciting.  Learning effortlessly, with grace, and caring on the love of learning are the goals of Montessori education.
