Chinese Culture Cards

This year, Candice and I decided to teach our littles about Chinese New Year-since our other sister lives in Taiwan and there were quite a few local celebrations happening. Candice made the girls Chinese Zodiac cards and although they loved the pictures of the animals, they were a bit too abstract for them to understand. I made these cards after our Chinese New Year theme but Little I really enjoyed them. I showed her real chopsticks and how to use them (well atleast I tried), we had Chinese food for dinner, and her Mimi even brought her a real Chinese dress back from Taiwan. I tried to make the abstract concrete.

I hope you like them as much as Little I did.

These would even make a great addition to your continent boxes.

Shape Classified Cards

Little I has always been very good with shapes. I wanted a better way to teach her a bigger variety so I made these for her. I made them yellow because all the shapes in her shape sorter are yellow, and I thought it best to stick to that. Here is the link: Shapes

Transport Theme Classified Cards

When I started making Montessori Classified Cards for Little I, I wasn't able to find cards exactly how I wanted them, which forced me to start making my own. I have really enjoyed making these. Definitely more to come, so check back.
