Additional Information:
Here are two of my favourite books providing hands-on guide on Montessori activities that are practical, simple, easy to follow, fun to read an full of pictures. These books also provide lots of ideas on using simple equipment that you can find at home. You can find them in Amazon. However, if you have to only pick one, I would recommend the first book "Teach Me to Do It Myself":
