We’re on a real Montessori roll here in our ‘Home Among the Gum Trees’. On the weekend I started making fabric cards, I was inspired by Emily over at Sacred Heart of Jesus Academy it seemed like a do-able kind of activity to make.
I then searched the house for different kinds of fabric and came up with eight different kinds, just a perfect number giving the girls a set of four each. I found cotton in the fabric box, felt in the craft cupboard, a scrap of lace in the dress ups and an old foot mat was cut up for terry towelling. I then thought of vinyl from the shed, book covering plastic and paper amongst the school supplies and then I cut up chux from the kitchen. An eclectic collection and we were ready to start.
Having made cards I now had to consider where to store them, however an idea shared at 4 Real gave me the idea to use my index card holder.
This activity was another hit and the children are keen for more.
