Montessori-inspired Green Activities for Tots & Preschoolers w/ Free Printables

In the midst of all of our adventures with Sunshine, I've neglected to share her activities.  She has been working hard!  Take a look at all of her green themed activities!

L is for...
Sunshine has been working hard to identify and write the first letter of her name.  I was so impressed at how well she did!

Number 2 Sand Tray Practice
Sunshine did a great job writing the number one in her red sand tray.  I thought I'd see how she did with the number two.  Unfortunately, the task was too difficult for her.  It looks like we'll be incorporating some pre-writing activities in the future!

Two Green Beads
Sunshine did a fabulous job stringing two beads on each green pipe cleaner, creating her own two bead bars.  

Africa is Green
I'm not sure if it was the green play dough, the map, or the activity itself, but Sunshine LOVED pulling this tray off the shelf to work.  She did a great job covering the continent with green play dough and then removed it to see if it looked the same.  As our time in the classroom progressed, she also added animal figures to her play dough map of Africa.  Oh, and did I mention how much I LOVE the way Sunshine says the word, "Africa" and talks all about the animals that live there?

Animals of Africa
When selecting this activity, Sunshine matched up animals to their corresponding cards. All of the animals are from Africa.  Sunshine LOVES animals, so this was quite popular.

Scooping Green Macaroni
Sunshine did extremely well spooning last week, so I thought I'd add a scoop to our transfer activity this time.  She struggled a little bit with the coordination required for the activity at first, but then she got it.  I loved using macaroni because when it spilled, it was easy to pick up.  Sunshine could do it all on her own.

Tweezing Green Pom Poms
I was so impressed at how much Sunshine has grown, as I watched her use the tweezers appropriately to transfer green pom poms from one bowl to the other.  It's so nice to see progress!
