I published a roundup post earlier this year with Montessori-inspired sewing activities. Today, I’m focusing on Montessori-inspired knitting activities.
Sewing and knitting are both wonderful practical life activities for advanced preschoolers as well as older children. They help develop concentration and independence as well as fine-motor coordination.
Here are Montessori-inspired knitting activities from around the blogosphere along with knitting resources that are helpful for preparing Montessori-inspired knitting activities. These are typically best for 5 year olds with advanced fine-motor skills and elementary-age children.
