Some simple Montessori inspired..or just simply fun daily activities :

- Pouring activities (Practical Life for Toddlers and Sensory Training)
Pouring/Scooping pasta using spoon between 2 cups

Distributing the cornflakes cereal to an ice cube tray

Macaroni pouring

Pouring, scooping and sensory exploration using "sandbox" (we're using instant muesli)

Pouring, scooping and sensory exploration using water ball sensory table

Putting back the waterball to the bottle (and pouring it back)

- Wooden/laundry peg activities: 

Result : Taking off the wooden pegs was easy, but she's not able to put them on again

This is an activity that she invented by herself :)
When I was doing the laundry, she played around and the pegs caught her eye

- Other practical & sensory activities

Pulling and pushing in chenile to a small hole

 Putting in/out straws to a container

Sweeping using small broom

This is what happened if she's using the normal size broom, 
showing off and bring it all the way to the side of the street :)

Inserting coins to a money bank

Cutting a bread using cookie cutter

Playing..or biting wooden puzzle :)

Watering the plants

- Art Activities

Finger painting
Result: She's not comfortable yet to have stains on her palms, so she was using a sponge brush

DIY finger painting recipe: 
2 cups of corn flour/ starch

 1 cup of cold water

4.5 cups of boiling water
 Liquid food colouring

Playing with play doh
Result: it is not an art activity yet, since she likes to poke and roll the dough only, it is considered sensorial activity :)

Note: Adult supervision needed for all of the activities :)

- Music Activities :
Playing piano

Playing maracas

Playing guitar

Morning dance routine

Nursery songs

- Outdoor/nature play: Nature is the best and subtlest teacher, that's why we go outside around our house or to a playground, twice a day, 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon. We really enjoy this walks. Sometimes we do an evening stroll if hungrydaddy can go out from work early :')

Observing nature around the house

Pushing cart 

Nature walks

And her favourite : Water play

- Language Activities: We read to her a bible story every night before we go to bed
Result : She is not really focused with the book yet, moving around and then back to the book, but excited for closing prayer time.
