I stumbled across this fantastic website tonight. It's called Productive Parenting. I went through the free membership process to be sure there weren't any hidden fees or charges. A group of moms created this website as a way to provide simple, age-appropriate activities for children ages infant to five years. Simply give them some basic info (your name, city/state, child's name & age) and choose the days that you would like to receive your activity ideas through email. I know that there are some days when I am just too busy to even read an email about an activity, so I chose the days that I would most likely put these activities into action. After reading through some of their sample ideas, I was pleasantly surprised that many of these games are Montessori-inspired! I think the goal of this website is simply to encourage parents to reconnect with their kids for a few minutes a day. Most of the time, any materials needed are found objects around the home. Take a look at this video and then visit their website to sign up for some free activity ideas.
