What toys do you buy an infant who is turning 12 months old? An infant going into its toddler stage, who is an explorer on the go that loves to use his hands and his feet? An experimenter who shows relentless curiosity? Montessori materials and activities of course! Here is a wonderful gift guide for a Montessori toddler that is one – two years old, Montessori style!
The Best Gifts for a Montessori Toddler
Montessori Toys for Your Montessori Toddler
One of my all-time favorite Montessori books for the toddler stage is The Joyful Child: Montessori, Global Wisdom for Birth to Three. It’s the perfect book for raising children through 3 years of age.
Perfect Open-Ended Toys for a Toddler
They will touch, feel, mouth, hold, drop, throw, shake, bang, taste, smell, and listen to every item they can get their hands on; as well as crawl, cruise, toddle, walk, climb, and run (large motor movements). This is how the 12-month-old learns, through action, by doing.
