  • Understanding basic math concepts like less, more, simple adding and subtracting
  • Solving puzzles
  • Improved memory and recollection of events

How to choose Montessori toys for five-year-olds?

Here are some excellent suggestions if you are not up for browsing the entire category.

Montessori Wooden ToolBox - If there is a toy that combines exercising real life-skills, creative thinking, and problem-solving with dexterity and fine motor skills practice, then this is the one. It’s time to graduate from zippers, buttons, and knobs and start operating those screwdrivers, hammers, and wrenches - all in a controlled and safe environment. 

Montessori Memory Game - Practicing focus, memory, perception, and patience has never been more important than it is today. That is why a good and well-designed memory game should be a part of every household in which there is an eager preschooler. 

Montessori Brushing Teeth - Your five-year-old becomes increasingly independent when it comes to doing things on their own. Eating and dressing is important, but brushing their teeth is on a completely another level. Practicing brushing techniques will improve their dexterity, their self-confidence and nurture their independence. All that, plus guaranteed pearly whites - this game makes a wonderful gift.
