Activities to Enjoy with Your Kids At Home

[object Object]

Under the Montessori curriculum, students have the freedom to be creative and independent. Children are given the opportunity to make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. However, learning can be extended outside of the classroom too.

Here’s a list of fun activities for you and your kids to do together at home this summer:

  • Music and Dancing.
  • Seed Germination: Plant seeds of flowers or vegetables in peat pots/yogurt containers, or directly in the ground. Have the children water what they have planted daily and observe the growth process.
  • Leaf Washing.
  • Watering Plants.
  • Gluing: Take a small paintbrush and put a little bit of glue in a small container. Cut out some shapes or allow the child to rip some papers prior to this that the child will glue onto pieces of paper.
  • Painting/Watercolors.
  • Learning to Use Scissors/Cutting: Cut strips of paper using card stock paper to allow your child to practice cutting with real scissors.
  • Matching Activities: Use any items, such as blocks, pictures, etc. Lay one set out in a column or a row and ask the child to find the ones that look the same and put them next to the first set.
  • Sorting Laundry.
  • Folding Washcloths and Clothes.
  • Setting and Clearing the Table.
  • Rinsing/Placing items in Dishwasher/Emptying Dishwasher.
  • Food Preparation Activities: Your child can help prepare daily snacks and meals, from washing fruits and vegetables, to cutting and slicing as well as baking.
  • Movement Activities: Such as yoga and fun cardio for children.

At iKids Montessori Academy, we profoundly believe that all children are competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. We recognize that the first six years of a child’s life are the most formative where the child’s physical, social and emotional development begin to form strong connections. It is our desire to ensure that each and every child in our care is successful by fostering these areas in their daily experiences.
