Baby Loves Montessori

I rotate all of Logan's material for two reasons.  One: I just don't have enough space for everything to be out all of the time.  Two: Our work is always available and I don't want to have to harp on everyone to put away all of the pieces, all of the time.  He always has 2-3 different Montessori themed works out and I keep the rest in a shelf in a closet.  Well last week the closet door got left open and Logan decided he wanted to change to a new work.  He took this out of the closet, brought it out to the living room, and spent about a half an hour joyfully inserting that little green prism again and again.  I was lucky enough to catch a little bit of his focus on camera to remember!  I love the open mouth as he puts the prism in.

How old is your Logan? I also have a Logan who is 8 months old! He loves all of his Montessori toys the best! He has just figured out how to put he ball through the hole in the object permanence box. He spends quite a bit of time doing this. what other Montessori activities do you do with him?
