As Christmas is fast approaching, I want to share with you a new series about…
In order to inspire you this Christmas, I have written a series of blog posts featuring my favourites toys and gifts.
This week, we will focus on practical materials and gifts that are not toys.
We love toys in our family but we know that we don’t need that many.
Children under the age of 6 want to develop their independence and their skills. The following ideas will support that natural need.

I have chosen gifts that I would be happy to offer to any child. So you may be inspired when you have to attend a birthday party or your family will be happy to pick from your list.
I know how much parents struggle with convincing their family to offer specific gifts. Hopefully, this list will help you!
The main aim of these materials is to encourage your child’s independence.
In the Montessori curriculum, those materials will relate to the Practical life area or Activities of Everyday living.
I have broken down the ideas into two categories: Care of the Environment and Care of Self.
I hope you will find these gifts ideas useful!
Stay tuned for another list next week!
