If you’re looking for the perfect present for a toddler, whether it’s for a birthday or a reward, then the Montessori My First Desk is the ideal educational toy which offers them the freedom to explore independently as well as build their confidence within their surroundings.
Now, you may have already heard about the Montessori Method, but if you haven’t, it’s basically a way of education which centres on the child and focuses on child-led activities. It encourages hands-on independence and takes into account the child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. Therefore, this also makes it great for those with special educational needs.
The Montessori My First Desk comes with multiple activities, great to keep your little one occupied for hours! They can get involved with a range of well known Montessori techniques such as using sand to practice writing the alphabet, learning to tie their shoe laces and even matching up shapes with their silhouettes as well as much more. Not only are these tasks brilliant for learning through play for improving hand coordination as well as reading comprehension, but they also allow toddlers to recognise themselves and the world around them through sensory experiences.
The desk itself is made from a bright and colourful durable plastic, playing on a toddler’s natural curiosity and enticing them to take part in the activities. It’s also pretty compact and all the accessories can be stored away in a neat manner for another day – perfect for those with limited spaces! My 3 year old niece received this as an early birthday present and I haven’t been able to wipe the smile off her face! She particularly loves the whiteboard and alphabet tiles, which are great to take when on the go. My niece also likes to double the desk up as her very own dining table – talk about convenience, eh?
For £29.99, it’s a brilliant investment for your little one if you’d like them to spend a little more time developing their skills. It also makes an ideal gift for someone else’s toddler, because it’ll get plenty of use when learning through play.
Until next time.
