Fall is my favorite season. Hands down. I love when the weather finally turns the corner and the windows can stay open all day long. I love the pause nature takes in its yearly cycle, even though much is beginning its descent into winter’s bareness…fall is beautiful.
It’s the reprieve we need after a summer that’s sweltered near 100 degrees. Amen.
In the Montessori classroom or home, it’s a great time to gently enter a new season taking the time to reflect, slow our pace, and note the ways we can engage in the world around us—nature and the people in our community.
I’ve culled the archives of Our Montessori Home and put together all our best Montessori fall activities for you to find in one place. I hope you find something to inspire and encourage you and your little ones as you enjoy fall.
