Montessori outdoor spaces and activities

Even though the Dutch weather is still pretty gray, summer is in the air! My family loves spending time outdoors, enjoying nature, and exploring! Mr. Toddler is very inquisitive and I love adding nature exploration to our homeschool works. Summer is a perfect time to get some educational outdoor exploration into your day! 

In order to inspire you, I put together a collection of some of my favourite outdoor spaces and activities that you can be sure to enjoy with your little ones this summer!
