Montessori at Home (2) : Shape Sorting ♥ 在家蒙特梭利 (2) : 形状分类延续篇

This is the basic shape sorter which most family will have at least one, and Chen played this since her 12M (or before this, i'm not remember when we bought this her). And now she is 22M+, and she seems totally lost her interest on playing with this shape sorter. Well, to extend its "life", mummy decided to add on some DIY parts for it. Here is how we go~
这是几乎每个家庭都有的益智玩具。当然每个玩具都一样,孩子们在一段时间后就会渐渐不再去碰,转而投向其他新鲜的~ 今天我们就在现有玩具上加入新元素,让旧玩具继续吃香~

Preparation / 准备工作 : 

Material / 材料用具 :
Recycle cardboard  厚纸皮 + shape block 形状颗粒

Skills / 可以学些什么 :
Matching  配对 (形状的辨识)
Hand-Eye Coordination  手眼协调 

Suitable for baby around 18M or above.

Cutting the cardboard to the size that you need. Draw out the outline of the shape block as in picture. Then can start the activity.

Chen is working hard on fitting the shape into the outline :

Actually it is not too easy for kids to put on the shape block onto the tracing line correctly. They need to adjust few times only can match nicely. It is another simple activity to help on development of Hand-Eye Coordination.


It is another cost saving & less preparation work activities which suit for every busy parent to go with children. You can just take any shape block with you to start this activity. 

Happy trying on Montessori @ Home!
