My sponsors pay for advertising space on my blog, and I’m also an affiliate for some other companies. These are only products and companies I believe are good. Many of them are products I’ve used. Others are new products that weren’t around when I was raising my children but that I would have used.

My Affiliate Companies:

When you’re interested in a product I recommend, I really appreciate it when you purchase it through my affiliate link or banner ad. You just have to click on the banner ad or link and then purchase like you normally would from the company store the link leads to. You’ll receive the same prices and deals as if you went directly through the company’s link. If you go through my affiliate links, though, I’ll be given a small commission on your purchase.

Montessori Services and For Small Hands

Shop Montessori Services

I’m thrilled to be an affiliate for Montessori Services … an absolutely FABULOUS company that has been one of my very favorite Montessori suppliers from the time I owned a Montessori school in the 1980s. It was also one of my favorite Montessori suppliers when I was a Montessori homeschooler in the 1990s. The materials from Montessori Services are just as wonderful today (even more so, since there are more of them)! Montessori Services has two sites … Montessori Services and For Small Hands. Montessori Services has LOTS of products that are perfect for Montessori teachers, schools, and homeschools. Their focus is the primary classroom (3-6 years old) and practical life is their specialty. They do offer products in all curriculum areas, though, and for children younger and older than ages 3-6.

Shop For Small Hands

For Small Hands offers products specifically for Montessori at home. Child-size cooking, cleaning, woodworking, and yard & garden products are unique offerings you’ll find at For Small Hands. They also have a wide range of educational games and toys that work well as complements to a Montessori education. Their main age group is 3-6, but they have products for younger and older children as well.
Best Gifts for Kids - Montessori-Friendly Baby and Toddler Toys

You’ll find some of my favorite Montessori toys for babies and toddlers featuring a number of toys from For Small Hands in my Best Gifts for Kids: Montessori-Friendly Baby and Toddler Toys.
