Montessori Color Tablets (they look AMAZING!!)

A few weeks ago I was teaching my husband about Montessori and some of their great manipulatives. I drool over the wooden educational toys- especially the color tablets. Is it the array of bright colors? Or the challenge of sorting them by shade? Who knows! I was so happy to see that other mommys had figured out how to make them (now a password protected site).
We headed on down to the hardware store to pick paint samples. After that, my husband was super excited and insisted on doing the rest of the work himself.
Just look how amazing!

There are 80 tablets all together. There are 10 different colors in 4 shades. And I thought that we could do some early matching activities if we had 2 of each- so all 40 colors have a match! I can’t wait to use them! And thank you hubby!!!! Our little Boo will love that her daddy made her an educational toy! 🙂

    wow – they look amazing. Mine are just plain boring laminate (and just single colours at the moment due to her stage). Neither I nor hubby are handy-people….but this has inspired me to see if I can do the wooden ones somehow. Well done.

    I am a homeschooling mom who is getting certified in Montessori teaching. I would be interested in the details as far as how you went about making your own color tablets. I have to purchase quite a bit for my preschool but would love to be able to save money by making what I can on my own. I tried the link you have but their blog is protected.

    Thank you so much and GREAT job!!
