Beautiful activities! I love how you have the goggles with the woodworking! I bet she looks super cute wearing all of her safety gear.
Did you sew the holder for your three part cards? I'm trying to figure out the best way to hold all of my three part cards for my continent boxes and yours looks great.
If you did sew it do you have a pattern?

About a girl, thanks for your comment! She has fun wearing the goggles. I want to take a picture of her!
Yes I did sew the cards holder..I just measured the cards and create the holder with those measures. I don't have an specific pattern as much as I looked online I couldn't find any tutorial or ideas to make this one. But if you want I can create a pattern of my holder and e-mail it to you...but I don't know if your cards are the same size of mine..just let me know.I will be more than happy to do it.

C loved putting the cards back on the holder..she just looked so interested on them!

Big hugs.

Great activities. I bet you will have a nice rainbow month. I love the word puzzles. We had a very similar set which has become also a hit in our house. Love.

I absolutely love the woodworking work! I am going to set this up for the kids. Thank you for sharing. Now I am on the hunt for some wood:)

Olives and Pickles said...

Ewa, Thank you for your nice comment.have a great weekend.

Discovering Montessori, I also love the wooden activity, I bought the goggles,hammer and the apron as a set at Lowes" child size" the hammer is very very light weight.I paid for this set $9. I think it is very reasonable considering that I was looking on line for child size tool and only for the hammer they are asking $10.
Hope this helps..good luck finding wood.

Thanks Patty. I think I'll get my mom to give it a go. She's really great at sewing. I'm going to use yours as a model!
