Montessori discovery basket: silver and gold 

There is usually a “treasure basket” of mixed objects to be found on one of Frida’s shelves. I tend to try and stick to objects of a certain theme, to encourage her to draw associations between the similar properties. 

This week I have pulled together a very simple silver and gold basket.   In it I have included: 

  • A small sensory jar of “gold” liquid (yellow food dye and gold glitter glue mixed with water) 
  • A jar of silver sugar balls
  • A gold bauble
  • A silver spoon
  • A gold chocolate box 
  • A silver kiddush cup

So far it’s been a hit and Frida has enjoyed exploring its contents.
