European Continent Box

Trying to stay in true Montessori style, I am working on creating Contient Boxes for each of the continents.  Since we are still learning about European countries, here is the items we have collected.

There is a puzzle of Robin Hood and a AAA magazine about Ireland.  There pictures of all the European flags, instruments, popular food and animals.

Russian Nest Dolls of course.

I found this sticker book on clearance and it will be hopping between the boxes as we work on each one.  Roman Numerals information is included and sticks so that we can recreate our own number creations.

Little shoes for the Netherlands, a toob of Knights and Dragons, Stamps from Hungary, and a lier from Italy (which is not clonger the currency there).

Samples of traditional clothing for different areas, a mini Eiffel tower (from a Flat swap) and information on a castle in Britain (also from a Flat Swap).  Stamps from Switzerland.

This is an awesome find from ebay.  This doll is from Germany.  You have Little Red Riding Hood.

You flip the dress over and it's Grandma.

Turn Grandma over and there's the Big Bad Wolf.  Lydia thinks this is cool!

I found Continent Silly Bands.

A puzzle map of Iceland (also from Ebay).

Let's see how the kids enjoy this project.

Have a great week!!!


  1. I love nesting dolls and I used to have a doll like the Red Riding Hood! You have done a great job pulling together the Mont method for your teaching! I wish I was more patient and able to do that!

  2. My daughter had one of those dolls like your red riding hood one...only hers was the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. It's funny now that I think about it, because I'm wondering how in the world they made the one side 3 pigs? I probably would have a better memory of it if she had actually played with it more, but she was 7 when she got it and thought she was to big for the 3 little pigs story!

    ps: I like you blog button with the frog :D I'll have to put it on my sidebar!

  3. I used to have a doll like that. Little red riding hood and then flip it inside out and it was the big bad wolf. I don't remember Grandma as part of it. But I remember playing with it when I was about 6 or 7. Great job on the boxes
