L is right in the middle of what appears to be a period of focus on her gross motor skills, she wants to participate in a lot of BIG movement play and games and has so much energy so we invent ways to really get some maximum effort play going and one of the way we do this is utilizing soft play. She loves it, so much running, jumping, crawling and climbing to be had through mazes up rope ladders and across rope bridges, scaling walls and slides and ball pits. Definitely maximum effort!
We have a dedicated Prepared Environment for her Montessori Materials which we refer to as Tot School, a phrase coined (I think) by Nicole over at The Kavanaugh Report, it’s our little girl’s favourite room in the house. I don’t blame her, it’s so orderly and peaceful!
