Looking back at the post, I was reminded how beautiful the Montessori materials are -- they are sublime in their beauty, simplicity, and sheer genius. We were inspired to make a new set of designs from scratch, and the girls welcomed the challenge (there are a few pics of the girls working on them here), even designing one of their own.
Below you will find photos of a new set of extensions for you to use in your Montessori classroom (and the names we gave them). Like the Montessori materials themselves, the pictures call to our kids and compel them to build, build, build! We hope you enjoy them!
