|Our Hundred Board|
As I look around at other things I have made for my children but wish were better, I realize my children still love to use them. They know I have taken the time (and often not small amounts of time) to make them to be as nice as I could with what I had at hand. Or, even better, they have helped in making them. When this is the case the item is even better because they are in their eyes fully their own. In reflection, I think this follows the Montessori principles as much, if not more, than buying them. We are working together using our hands to create the tool for the educational success.
