The 5 best Montessori toys
Toys for children without plastic that do not make loud or annoying noises and melodies are considered Montessori teaching materials. The right toys for children are made from natural materials in different colors and leave room for creativity. Montessori education states that educational toys are designed to help the child develop their imagination. They subtly encourage participation in the game without being aggressive and compelling. We have selected 5 toys that will be appreciated by Montessori parents and teachers.
- Sorter made of wood
A wonderful toy for toddlers who are just beginning to develop sensorimotor coordination and learn shapes and colors.
The main goal of the sorter is to develop the child's logical thinking. By sorting the small parts, children improve their analytical skills, memory and color perception. Each sorter has its own characteristics, so you can choose a sorter that is suitable for children of all ages and levels of development. We offer various sorting toys on our website.
- Playing with lacing using the Montessori method
Usually, toys with laces are designed like toys of simple large geometric shapes - a cube, a cylinder, a sphere. All toys have large through-holes, so lacing is easy and beneficial for young children. The lacing is smooth and beautiful, its color is pleasant, the toy is made of natural wood. These properties are typical of almost every Montessori toy . This wooden educational toy is suitable for sensorimotor learning. You can take it with you on a trip or for a walk. For toddlers we offer a classic Montessori toy made of wood - lacing with rainbow beads - on our website.
Pyramids are suitable for toddlers from six months. This wooden toy promotes the child's sense of balance and logical thinking. Thanks to their small parts, children learn to find similar shapes. Pyramids allow you to systematically develop your child's thinking and teach basic colors. The wooden pyramid helps to explain the concepts of "more", "less", "the same", "different". The wood, the main material of the toy, is warm and soft. It is very important for the sense of touch. Take a look at our pyramid, which is designed as flowers and the toy is made of wood.
Wood materials (beech, oak, maple, ash, linden) have special warmth and energy.
- Musical instruments for young children
When children play musical instruments, they develop a sense of rhythm, musical ear, and logical thinking. You can make a basket of musical instruments for your child. You can put musical instruments such as maracas, bells, drums, pipes, harmonica and metallophone in the basket. Play these instruments, sing with your child and listen to melodic music together.
