Matching Paper Clips

I introduced this activity to O a few months ago, and she was totally uninterested. I put it away and brought it back out today. Today she loved it!

 

She rolls the roller on the paper clip dispenser, gets the clip and then clips it to the matching dot. The last paper clip didn't catch onto the magnetic roller, so we had to shake it a bit. I think smaller paper clips will work bettter with the dispenser.


Wow! Four Montessori posts in a row. Maybe this is a Montessori blog afterall. I was beginning to have my doubts :)

  2. Ummm. I think the secretary at work gave them to everyone for Christmas last year. So...I was probably supposed to use it at work :)

  4. How old is O? I'm wondering if these activities would work for my 2.5 year old...she needs something to do while I am working on school with the 10.5 year old!

    Where do you find the trays?
