Montessori Christmas Gift Ideas for Toddlers

Last year I made a gift idea list for infants and toddlers. This year I decided to separate and extend the list, so that infants, toddlers, and preschoolers each get their own list!

If you’re wondering what to get for your child, a friend, niece/nephew, or grandchild, then I hope this helps you. Each list is a mix of items we own and what’s on our wishlist (or wish we had at that age).

    I just wanted to mention how wonderful these toys are for special needs children, I have a child with Down Syndrome and these toys are especially designed in a way that assists not only tactile and reasoning skills but offers them the ability to discover and develop creatively. So if you are looking for toys that enhance growth and mental learning, these are what you need! Thanks!
