There is this wonderful children’s shop in my neighborhood called Once Upon A Time. The owner has a Montessori background. I was thrilled when I found various baskets of Safari Toob’s throughout her store. In other words, I didn’t have to buy the whole Arctic Toob if I just wanted a walrus. I quickly snagged up figurines that I could recall off the top of my head were included in a beautiful set of Animal Track ABC Cards I purchased recently from Etsy (thank you Pinterest for this one!). I didn’t worry about covering the whole alphabet, just grabbed enough for my 3 year old to get a good learning activity out of it.

I placed the figurines and the set of cards in a small basket on my boys’ play room shelves. I waited until the next morning for him to discover it. He did promptly as to be expected by most curious 3 year olds!
