It’ll be Father’s Day soon! Again this year, there are lots of great Father’s Day ideas available online! Today, I’ll share my previously published Father’s Day posts along with some new ideas since my last Father’s Day post.
You’ll notice that a number of Montessori schools have Father’s Day breakfasts and activities that involve the children serving meals or desserts to their fathers. This would be a great week to review grace and courtesy if you’d like your child to serve breakfast or another meal to his or her father.
Here’s my post on “How to Teach Your Preschooler Manners Using Montessori Principles.” “Grace and Courtesy Games at Home or School” also has ideas for teaching many types of manners. And here’s a post with lots of ideas for helping your child work on food-preparation skills: “Montessori-Inspired Food Preparation for Preschoolers.”
Montessori-Inspired Ideas for Father’s Day
Last year, I had a “Montessori-Inspired Father’s Day” post with ideas such as the Montessori-inspired card-making materials my children used to enjoy.
Last week, I had a post on “Talking with Children about Death: Creating an ‘I Remember’ Book” for children who’ve experienced the death of a special male relative. It includes suggestions for helping children cope with death and a free printable for an “I Remember” book about any special relative or pet who died. There are also free printables for an “I Miss You” book and an “I Love You” book for military families and other families separated by distance on Father’s Day (or any day).
Whether you’re at home or have a school, you could always do a variation of a Father’s Day breakfast to honor a special dad or dads and give extra practice in grace and courtesy for your child or students.
Montessori Way has “Father’s Day Games” with dessert served by the child.
Inside INLY has a “Father’s Day Lunch: A Kindergarten Tradition of Pizza and Kite-Making.”
