Affordable DIY Montessori-Inspired Summer Activities


If you're like me and my family, you are on a tight budget this summer! With the cost of camps for the kids and gas for the car, new outdoor toys, and (sometimes expensive) Montessori materials, your wallet will shrink in no time (if there was anything in there to begin with)! Thanks to the Internet and some FANTASTIC Montessori mom bloggers, I rounded up a few budget-conscious activities for you to do at home during the summer break, the good kind of break!

Leanne is the Montessori mom blogger over at Hands On Homeschool. And she has Firefly science for kids activities to share with you!

Trish on the Live and Learn Farm Montessori and homeschool blog (for older children) shows you how to do Scavenger hunts using a map and compass.

And get ready for some yummy summer treats at Aubrey's Montessori Mischief blog where she offers: Strawberry Slicing, making a Summer Breakfast, and Planning for the Summer!

Making Montessori Ours is going outside with their Kid's Garden Planner and Unit!

And I have a few, summer-friendly, low cost Montessori activities for you to try: 
Bird Feeding Activity
Composting With Kids
Outside and Nature Activities
