Song stuck in your head now? Go Hammer, Yo Hammer, MC Hammer...it's Hammer time!
Yea, so...this isn't about that song or MC Hammer (as cool as they both were).
I've received so many nice emails about this Montessori Knock-Off series (thank you!!). I'm going to keep posting ideas until I run out of them. :)
I personally like this method better because the tot has to hold the cube still while hitting the nail in - takes lots of concentration and coordination to do that!
You can also use clay to make your own. Here's one from United Montessori that I liked. It's using play dough in an air tight container (click link for instructions):
You could also easily make your own variation of this using golf tees as well (the real nails made me a bit nervous).
