I always loved Valentine’s Day and enjoyed creating activities that were Montessori oriented but had a Valentine’s Day theme. Using a seasonal theme adds new interest to practical life activities and any curriculum area.
Counting Coconuts is always a great source for seasonal Montessori-inspired activities. The photo is an example of a simple open and close basket – but with a Valentine’s Day theme (and heart-shaped erasers inside each container), making the activity come to life again. Here’s the link to all the wonderful Montessori-inspired Valentine’s Day posts from Counting Coconuts. You’ll notice that many of the activities are easy to prepare … well-worth putting on your shelves for the two weeks before Valentine’s Day!
Here are links to some other wonderful Montessori-inspired Valentine’s Day activities from around the blogosphere (sometimes you’ll even get the bonus of additional activities within one post!):
