I had seen the idea of the "rice box" over at Meredith's blog and loved it! She has gotten me very interested in the idea of Montessori. I would love to incorporate some Montessori into our daily learning. To this end I am perusing the lovely websites that Meredith recommends and I have checked out some basic books from the library. How exciting! How rich!
Andrew loved the rice box! He spent an hour and a half playing with it yesterday! As I type, he is outside on the play set with it. What a delight to watch him explore and learn. Yes, I vacuumed a good bit of rice yesterday, but it was worth it. And, hey, it's much better cleaning up dry rice than cooked!
