Montessori Wooden Toys
What are the best Montessori toys out there made from wood?
With so many to choose from, I thought I’d list out a selection of my favorite classic wooden Montessori toys here.
In my mind, nothing beats wooden blocks as the ultimate wooden Montessori toy for children. You can do so much with them–they help kids build all kinds of different skills, and they continually encourage lots of creativity from the child ‘working’ with the set of blocks. The more blocks, the merrier!
Of course, there are plenty of other kinds of wooden toys in the Montessori tradition. I’ve listed the best of the best below. Hope you like them as much as I do!
