Additional Information:

J asked to do Montessori after dinner during bath time. So I took out beans and let him ladle, but he didn't want it. Then I took out containers with lids, and he also didn't want it. AARRRGGGHHH!!! (I need to think of ways to make containers with lids interesting again, as I think he can do with more practice).

He (2Y5M4D) asked for activities with water. So I tried this, and it as a hit. He loves the metal buckets. There is something very cute and attractive about these buckets, that I think would attract most children.

Updates: Baby FECS' turn with Montessori :-)
