I am a big fan of the Montessori method. I really feel connected to that philosophy. I attend to limited the plastic toys (even thought I have few) at home. Instead I am trying to make my own toy.
Roman is almost 3 and we are learning colors and letters. He is a big truck/train/car, kind of boy. To make the whole learning fun I’ve decide to built a truck. I add some wooden rainbow ABC’s block into it. Like a the container trucks you can see in the docks. Very inspiring. We did a visit in Red Hook the other day and we were fascinated by the all these colored containers!
Anyway, Few wooden piece here and there glue together, some wooden block painted in rainbow colors and voila.
