Montessori Stacker: 2 simple steps!
Ideal for : 8-12 months+ TODDLERS
Meant for: Hand and Eye Coordination
Today, we have come up with an amazing DIY HACK, to make your very own WOODEN STACKER at home. Alternatively, if you have one, read on to know how you can make it more interactive and engaging for your little one.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- TOY WHEEL / THICK CARDBOARD CUTOUT
- THREAD ROLL / CARDBOARD ROLLED CYLINDER
Start by sticking the Toy wheel & Thread roll with Glue Gun, and let it dry for 2 minutes. It is very important that your base is firm, not rocking/moving and glued strongly to the peg. Please ensure that your peg is neither too thick nor too narrow. If you are using thread roll, it should be slightly used, so that it’s not too thick, nor too weak.
ACTIVITY 1 – LARGE SIZE RINGS
ACTIVITY 2 – SMALL SIZE RINGS (we have used shaped teethers; we have also used rubber bands as second step of this Activity, to add an additional challenge PULL & PUT )
ACTIVITY 3- SPINDLING WITH IDENTICAL SIZE RINGS ( for this we have used our old wooden stacks, but you try this with napkin rings )
ACTIVITY 4- VARIED THICKNESS OF (we have used tapes)
ACTIVITY 5 – SPINDLING WITH VARYING GRADATION OF RINGS
ACTIVITY 6 – SPINDLING WITH VARYING GRADATION RINGS & DIFF COLOURS (we have also introduced an additional challenge of learning PRIMARY COLOURS- Red, Blue and Green )
