Recently I have been reading and looking more into the Montessori method that a lot of parents have started to use with their kids.

I got fascinated!

From what I understand the biggest benefits are that the baby will have more:

  1. Independent
  2. Hands-on learning
  3. Social and emotional intelligence

Those things are great! I mean, won't all of us want to have more hands-on learning, independence, and emotional intelligence? What does that really mean for your baby, and how can you achieve all those things?


Play is extremely important and it would be best to understand how that can influence your baby and their growth. Take for instance all the toys that are available for kids nowadays.

  • Large toys
  • Bright toys
  • Loud toys
  • Loud, bright and large toys

But when you give it to them, they would rather just play with a box that came with the toy.

So instead of providing them with this sensory overload, why not focus on providing something they can do and learn from and enjoy?

Recently I saw a video of a mother that simply let her child do chores around the house.

  • Watering the plants
  • Setting the plates on a table
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning

That sparked an idea! It's a wonderful way to spend quality time together, combining play and learning into one enjoyable experience.

This just basically ticked off 3 benefits:

  1. Independence
  2. Hands-on learning
  3. Social and emotional intelligence

Not everything has to be extremely colourful and loud. We should all strive to reduce their sensory overload, especially in times like this.

Hence, we opt for pastel colours in our clothing instead of bright greens, blues, or reds. These gentle hues can be worn by all children, allowing them to freely express themselves and make choices based on their preferences. By avoiding overwhelming their senses, we unconsciously adhere to the Montessori method.
