It’s almost the New Year, and now is a great time to plan a New Year’s celebration with your family! If you already have traditions you love, that’s wonderful. My previous New Year’s post tells what my family did to celebrate the New Year and has links to helpful resources: Starting and Nurturing New Year’s Traditions.
Below are some great ideas found in cyberspace. These aren’t all Montessori activities, but they’re all good, clean family fun.
