Learning to Fold

The activities my 5yo does at his Montessori School two mornings a week made me realize the value and importance of learning to do simple, everyday activities at this early age. I would never consider learning to fold a wash cloth fun, but to my 2 1/2yo today, it was thrilling! I’m guessing it is such fun because he is “helping me” do important work and for a few minutes has my undivided attention. Folding neatly was a challenge at first, but on his last one he did really well!

Lay it flat.


Match the corners.


Match the corners again.


Ta Da!
