Katja, 3, arranges flowers.
We scoured the arts and crafts books, picked the brains of our Montessori experts and came up with a host of unusual and fun craft projects that are developmentally appropriate for your little one.
Children as young as two will enjoy activities like coffee filter flowers and making home-made clay. Older children will be fascinated with fan folding, making a pinata and more. All are easy and inexpensive to set up at home. And our little teachers will show you and your child exactly how!
