Montessori While Traveling, Part 2

"The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences." ~Maria Montessori 

If I haven't mentioned it before, I'll say it again: we are a traveling family! I have posted before about keeping Montessori with us while we travel, but this time I want to focus a little on what we learned really works from the experiences my two kids (2.5 years and 1 year) and I had on our two-week visit to Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. I want to share how I used Montessori to plan and execute our trip to help my two little ones stay happy and distracted during a couple weeks away from home! Keep reading at mt NEW blog!

This original post was published in May of 2013 (at Montessori on a Budget). Since then we took 5 vacations and moved households twice! We are in the car a lot and my kids are used to keeping themselves entertained. I hope this post is helpful to you, especially the ideas that didn't work. ~Marie
