This post is for all my friends with kids of similar age to R&Z. I often get asked what do they play with, what activities they enjoy.

They love puzzles. About a year ago we started off with:

Now they are working on these ones:

And also some Montessori games I made for them:
- matching animals and their babies (in Polish)

- matching Schleich animals and their pictures

- Montessori dressing frames to learn how to do/undo buttons, belts etc

Having said that we spend most of our time outside or in the kitchen cooking.

Sutherland Park

First pizza

Z&R made their fist pizzas last week. It included adding the ingredients, mixing, stirring, kneading the dough, rolling it out and of course decorating with cheese. They loved it and want to do it every day. So we are now eating a lot of pizza.

Zwi in the skating park

This is what we snaked on in the park. Homemade corn and peas pancakes with spelt flower (made mostly by Zwi).

Duplo love

We try to avoid plastic toys (much more preferring handmade or wooden toys). Duplo is an exception. We love love love it. They love building with it and playing with it. Today we were drawing trees, ponds, roads and a parking lot for our Duplo toys.

Montessori Activity: Matching lids and putting them on

They were surprisingly amazing at this and within few minutes they put them all on correctly. They still have some trouble twisting the tops but that's about it.
