Montessori Skills

Suzanne, 2, demonstrates spooning exercises

In addition to the many mixed-skill demonstrations in our programs--so many of which are superb for developing fine motor skills, we've included several "by the book" Montessori exercises.

These are 'works" that may be seen in any toddler or preschool Montessori classroom. Watch and you'll see how to set them up using materials you already have on hand.

Pouring exercises - great for concentration and fine motor control Demo of using an eyedropper - develops pencil-holding muscles A fun braiding exercise that's easy to set up with a drawer at home
