Montessori Monday – DIY Montessori Teen and Ten Boards

DIY Montessori Teen and Ten BoardsFor Montessori homeschools, many of the traditional Montessori materials work well as DIY materials. To save money, many Montessori homeschoolers make their own Seguin (teen and ten) boards.

DIY wooden teen and ten boards can look very professional, but there are simple-to-prepare teen and teen boards that could work well, too. You could just choose whichever type fits with your level of comfort with woodworking and the amount of use you expect the teen and ten boards to get.

Montessori Monday Link-Up

Montessori MondayIf you have some Montessori activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.

Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date (which I often do when I’m looking for activities for a roundup post). I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky at 6:00 a.m. EST each Monday and keep the linky open throughout the week.

New links will go to the top of the linky. I’d love to see us build up a great collection of Montessori-inspired ideas there, too.
