Happy Monday everyone! Today I have some new trays to share with you, and a review of the adorable crumbing set from Montessori Services! As you know, I have had a really hard finding some new trays for Pup. She has not really been that interested in any practical life work. But when I saw this adorable crumbing set, I knew it would be a hit! Montessori Service was kind enough to send one to me so I could show it to you in action, and action it will see! I placed it on a tray for right now, but I know we will be using this to sweep up after playdough (you know those little dried up bits), to sweep cracker crumbs, and to sweep…well a million things! 🙂 The little set is made with a such care and perfection! The little broom is wooden with soft bristles, and the pan is metal with a wooden handle. It is really pretty and so useful! Plus, Montessori Services is the only place that carries this set! Believe me, I have searched and searched! Pup really loved it! Even Bunny wanted in on a chance to use this pretty little set!
I also thought that you would love to see a few more trays that are a spring/ botany theme! Some of them I made today, and some are older ones! My girls love to have things match what they are learning about!

I’ve had the crumber set for about 6 or 7 years, so it finally needs to be replaced! It has come in handy many times over the years. Your photos give me some new ideas of how to set up a work on the shelf–thanks!

I checked out Montessori Services 9again – I love looking at their site!) and I have to say, the ‘All Three Boards of Education’ boards, under their manipulatives section looked like something that my younger three, especially, would enjoy, and I think their blue glass pouring set is just beautiful!

We have that crumber! J-jo and Bear like to sweep crumbs off the table after breakfast. J-jo never liked trays. He never could stay focused long on them. But he has great focus in general. Bear loved trays and spent hours doing them at 2, but by 4 had lost all interest as well. We would buy all the woodworking things from Montessori Services if we could, as that is Bear’s new passion. Thank goodness for the Home Depot workshops once a month!

I love Montessori Services! Some of my favorites are the food prep trays and the classroom activity sets. I love how they are already put together and all ready to go.

I’d love to get their science and art materials…and about a million other different things! What a great company!

With unlimited amounts of money I would love the timeline of life. We also have the crumber and love it!

Just beginning to add elements of Montessori into my son’s world. He would love drums.

I love the glass pitchers!!

What very pretty trays you make! So envious! I kinda stop making the trays since my son just takes off with the materials right off my hands but will definitely get back into making them for my daughter when I start her on the method this fall. Yours are inspiring.

I would love the Get to Know rocks and minerals set!
April 17, 2013 @ 2:59 pm
We are ready to move on from lacing…so some of the sewing activities would definitely help!

I would get Smelling Bottles & Tasting Bottles with Trays and Hex, Slotted, and Graded Bolt Boards.
Thank you for the giveaway.

Love Montessori Services!! Looking to purchase some pitchers and pouring sets for my son.

I love Montessori Services! We’ve bought from them through our kids’ Montessori Preschool. since we’ll be officially homeschooling in the fall, I would love to add some Montessori materials to our day!

All the money in the world? Everything they have! But especially the child-size wheelbarrows, garden tools, and toddler cloth washing stand!

Montessori Services is a great store! I would love to have the crumbing set! 🙂
April 20, 2013 @ 2:47 am
Oh, and if I had all the money in the world, I am pretty sure I would be tempted to buy everything in their store. If I had narrow it down, my daughter would be crazy about everything from the food preparation and washing/cleaning sections! 🙂

We are just starting out with Montessori so I think I would use the gift card for any of their language materials!
