Object to picture matching, is one of most frequent Montessori activity. It’s also one of those activities that can keep a wide range of children happy. Through these the child learns to identify the similar features and to name animals or plants in the picture. The variety of the activities is endless; wherever possible the children will start by pairing real fruits, vegetables, plants to photographs or printed images. Mia loves object to picture matching activities.

This time I’ve put together autumn inspired matching activity. Mia was attentive for the first three objects and wouldn’t settle right after.  I took that as a sign of tiredness so we need to stop and did it the next day.  And yes, she was interested and did full activity. In our local park we see so many squirrels every day, so Mia’s favourite toy at the moment is this little Schleich’s Squirrel. She carries it everywhere she goes.
