Keeping up the Montessori side of things

It has been a hectic few weeks, this week especially but I have tried to keep some time on one side to work with BabyEbi, lovely as he is, he isn't really of much use when if come to packing, as I put things in the box he is taking them out!
I moved one of his shelves into the tatami room since the back room is now the packed box room and kept some of his favourite things on it.

The latest edition is the counting basket. He has recently taken to counting everything, I don't have a spindle box yet so I used a basket that I got in a swap with Meg and put 10 similar objects in it, each time he has had it out I swap the contents. I think at the moment it has 10 blue seahorses, we also have 10 mini apples, 10 raspberries, 10 mini pegs, 10 shells... keeps him on his toes, he never knows what will be in there next. His counting is getting better, he almost always gets to 10 without missing number 5 now.

My plan is to pack the shelf up last then unpack it ASAP at the other end and find it a home to try and make the transition as easy as possible.
