    I love these ideas! I need to incorporate more practical learning into our trays. Thanks for sharing.

    Your activities are great. I am starting to know and get informed about montessori and I am looking to get my 2 year old in this methodology.

    But I want to ask you whay the tray is so important to do the activities?

    thanks for answer.

      Hi Alexandra,

      The tray is the way the child carries the activity from the shelf to the floor or the shelf to the table. Sometimes, depending on the activity, it defines the workspace for the child doing the activity (same with a mat) and other child know not to interfere with that child’s work unless invited.
