If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’m a real fan of the great ideas and printables I find online. I love how simple they make it for teachers and parents to create attractive, inviting activities for school or home.
Today, I’m excited to be sharing links to two free printables that work well for creating a Montessori-inspired activity tray for winter. At PreK + K Sharing, I tell how I used the printables to create a Montessori-inspired activity tray that can be used for preschoolers at different ages and ability levels. I have a number of photos and ideas for creating and presenting a Montessori-inspired snowman color activity along with variations.
