Toddler Holiday Trays

Here is a look at some new holiday themed trays are on M's (18 months) shelves.

Sparkly fuzzy sticks into a cheese shaker

Spooning beads (think berries!) onto paint palette

Popsicle sticks into Moon Jar

Pouring star and bow buttons

Transferring bows (M tried the tweezer, but it was meant for D)
And here are some action shots!

  1. Such fun ideas and it's so great to see your beautiful toddler having a blast doing them. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I shared them on the Montessori MOMents facebook page.

  2. what great trays. I'm definitely going to do some of these with Goblin.

  3. I love the way you added a holiday focus with some great toddler activities! I added your post and your other Christmas posts to my Montessori-Inspired Christmas Activities at

  4. Hi,

    I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for some toddler montessori ideas. I have a question for you, did you let your toddler have access to the trays all the time? And did she ever use the materials in ways other than what was intended. I have toddler twins and all the seem to want to do is dump and throw the materials.



I would love to know what you think, so please take a moment and leave a comment! Thank you for reading!
