Toddler Montessori DIY: Developing Gross Motor Skills

If you visit the Nienhuis Montessori equipment site, you will see lots of beautiful and expensive Montessori equipment for toddlers. We have here an amazingly popular and very cheap DIY replica for one of them...

Material needed:
1. A basket
2. Large sponge balls or sponges

Cut a hole in the bottom of the basket. Store the balls in another basket or box. Hold the basket as your toddler throws the balls or sponges into it.

Try this project and see how long your child amuses him or herself with this exercise!
