Practical Life Ideas

On Saturday, April 24th, we participated in the PNMA Spring Sharing Fair at Spring Valley Montessori School in Federal Way, Washington. We will be sharing pictures and demonstration sheets of many creative activities over the next few weeks, but first...some pictures of various general Practical Life materials. It's always fun to see what other Montessorians put on their Practical Life shelves!
