Additional Information:
I am running out of ideas for Montessori Activity... then this morning, Joshua saw the ruler and asked to turn it into a Montessori activity. I was impressed at the originality of his idea, and I asked him if he had tried this activity at his daycare. He said no, he had not tried it in the daycare. So it was totally his own idea.  Good team work. At 2 years 9 months, Joshua is bbeginning to design his own Montessori activities now. It is nice that I don't have to always be the one to crack my brains for new ideas for Montessori :-)

We can't wait to try it after breakfast this morning. It would be hard to have a Clear Your Calendar Day, but hey, this is Joshua's request, so it will still be considered as a Clear Your Calendar Day  :-)
