““Play Is The Work of the Child”

– Maria Montessori



Need some Montessori-style play based suggestions to entertain and teach your kids, grand kids or your classroom?! You've come to the right place. Here, you'll find a collection of amazing ideas on how to use Safari Ltd's Toys that Teach® for Montessori play-based learning activities.

What exactly is a Montessori play activity? The Montessori play-based learning activities encourage children to learn through play. It's a method of education that focuses on the child and encourages self-directed activities, hands-on learning, and collaborative playtime; all while promoting autonomous learning. Allowing kids to make their own choices based on internal motivation rather than adult direction will set a foundation for developing capable children! These activities are great for parents, teachers, home school moms, and even grandparents who want their little ones to learn through the joy of play!
