On the 8th Day of Christmas Montessori Trays, the boys worked with handmade puzzles I made with popsicle sticks. I used images of Christ and his birth for the puzzles.
If the puzzles were solely made for Asher (2.5), I would have made a dot or line through the top (or left) of each of the popsicle sticks so it would be easier for him to recognize the direction of the puzzle, but since they’re for both of the boys I didn’t mark them. The colored popsicle sticks (found at Hobby Lobby) helps the boys distinguish between the different puzzles in case they’re mixed up. This way, it’s easier for the boys to separate them without needing my help.
