Over 8 years ago Jo Ebisujima started blogging about the Montessori activities that she did at home with her son. As she was on a tight budget many of the activities were done using everyday household equipment allowing her to buy a number of specialized key pieces of equipment for her son.

The book contains the activities she did using easy to find, everyday equipment. Jo also runs an ecourse "Montessori Crash Course" with Deb Chitwood helping overwhelmed parents come to grips with Montessori and getting them started on their Montessori journey.

Montessori's theory on education should be available to everyone as it helps the child with independence and self awareness, and although many of these activities seem very simple to an adult, for a child, they are engaging and help them to learn about the world around them, they help build concentration, dexterity and strengthen those important pincer muscles and fine motor skills.

This book is a collection of activities taken from the blog when Jo's son was between the ages of two and four. (but many were used until he was much older). Montessori theory is touched on in the in the book but not in depth as it is a practical guide for busy parents to set up activities for their developing child to do at home. Buy Montessori Inspired Activities for Pre-Schoolers NOW and get started right away, get your child engaged and having fun in a matter of minutes.
