Babies, infants and definitely toddlers are very curious and inquisitive about their surroundings. Parents and carers can nurture early science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) concepts and skills during playtime. We can support our kids to purposefully develop STEAM skills through simple and fun activities in our daily routine. For example, giving toddlers non-conventional toys like tissue paper rolls for painting.
Montessori Inspired ActivitiesAnother great activities to incorporate in our toddler’s daily routine are fun games that incorporate readiness skills such as ABCs, 1-20, colors and shapes. Wooden materials can be quite expensive, but don’t fret, there are tons of beautiful DIY Montessori inspired toys that kids can use. An example is using paper towel holder and tissue paper rolls for fine motor skills exercises.
