A Montessori busy book has pages with a variety of fine motor activities and sensory activities. They are a popular choice for quiet times and traveling with little ones. They can also keep a child busy while their caregivers do something else. Busy books are also a great way to introduce a child to the world of reading.
A busy book is a perfect tool to help your toddler develop fine motor skills. By using different textures and objects, your child will be able to make a picture and use the different parts of the picture to complete it. These books are often incredibly inexpensive and make a great gift for babies and toddlers.
If you’d like to create your own busy book, there are plenty of resources online that can give you an idea of how to make them. Some websites even offer free templates for busy books. Another resource, Kindred Inspiration, offers printable busy books with pages for identifying shapes and stacking ice cream scoops.
A Montessori busy board is another popular tool for building child development. It features several areas for a child to explore, such as touch, vision, and smell. These materials help build visual, tactile, and auditory skills while letting the child control the learning process. While there are many busy boards on the market, not all are truly Montessori aligned.
