A Sample Toolbox At Last!

It’s Finally Here!

Mad Scientist

We are getting closer to shipping our first Toolboxes. We are very excited and wanted to share a sample with you. The items may be slightly different if you receive this set of materials, since the one in the picture is just an example. However, we stand by the quality of all our materials.


Save Time and Money

We are dedicated to providing real value, so when we put this Toolbox together, we scoured the internet to find the best retail price for each item. Even after hours of searching, we discovered that you could not get everything here for less than $50. We feel confident in our ability to save you both TIME and MONEY.


What Is In the Toolbox?

Each Toolbox will provide the materials necessary for hours and hours of Montessori inspired activities, with various levels of difficulty. The materials in each Toolbox will be themed. This will give an extra boost to engage the imagination. Kids think its fun, but you know it’s learning. This example Toolbox is our Mad Scientist theme. The how and why of each activity will be explained with a video in the exclusive “Members” section of our website.


Example Activities

Mad ScientistHere is an example list of activities (including the area of study) that come with the Montessori Toolbox: Mad Scientist

  • Language Arts: Scientific vocabulary (flask, test tube, dye, beaker, etc)
  • Practical Life: Basic motor skills, pouring into a container
  • Practical Life: Basic motor skills, pouring with a funnel
  • Practical Life: Pouring with different sized containers
  • Practical Life: Grasping, hand eye coordination, fine motor skills
  • Sensorial: Primary color mixing
  • Sensorial: Color grading
  • Math: Measuring & learning about volume

We will also show you how these activities can be combined in various ways to create new activities that will keep your child interested in mastering essential skills.


Supplemental Activities

In addition to the 4 to 6 complete activities that come in each Toolbox, we will also include suggestions for activities that can be done using our materials. For example, with a few household items (like an egg, vinegar, or paperclip), you can explore even more advanced science projects. Your child can learn what dissolves in water, find out how to make an egg shell invisible, create a (less-messy) volcano, make metal float on water, and more!


What If I Already Have It?

Mad ScientistWe have been asked this question a few times. We are sure that most of our themed materials are so unique that you probably will not have it at home. At this time there is no way to exchange items of equal value from another Toolbox. For now, we are just two teachers trying to figure this out, but when the company gets bigger we hope to provide more customization.


Can I See The Sample Toolbox Before I Buy?

Montessori By Mom does not just sell material, we want to empower parents as educators with unique Montessori based activities–we provide convenience, inspiration, and explanations so you can focus on having fun and teaching your kids, not wasting time doing research and creating materials. A subscription to Montessori By Mom is SO MUCH MORE than the great materials you receive. There are so many options when buying educational products, and Toolboxes are curated by a Montessori professional to remove the guess work. We also think that a surprise Toolbox is a lot of fun! We don’t think you will ever be dissatisfied with a Toolbox, but if you are, please let us know right away!


Thank You!

We want to take this chance to thank YOU. We could not turn our dream into a reality without your support. The biggest help you can give us is to share our service (especially on social media) with someone who could benefit from it!

    Are you planning to ship abroad? I'm in the UK

  2. Montessori By Mom

    Helen, yes we are! Shipping will be expensive, but we are hoping to reduce that cost if we can.

  3. Karen Landon

    This is such a great idea! I am concerned with the dyes used though. Are they organic or artificial? I am really cautious about toxic, artificial dyes entering my home.

  4. Montessori By Mom

    Hi Karen, we are concerned about safety too. We are using an educational resources as a supplier for the dye, and have made sure they are safe and non-toxic.

  5. Jennifer Hoitsma Mallios

    What's the last day to preorder? We are traveling and I'd like to wait to get the year subscription when we get home… late in March. Is that okay?

  6. Montessori By Mom

    Hi Jennifer, pre-ordering will end April 10th. Glad to have you as part of our Montessori Family!

  7. Jennifer Hoitsma Mallios

    Thank you so much! I'm excited!

  8. Crystal Levin

    What age range is this for?? I have kids 11 to 2

  9. Montessori By Mom

    Hi Crystal, we will be starting out with ages 3 – 5, but as the company grows we hope to offer a larger range.

  10. Sarah Harding

    Crystal this activity can be expanded upon using the Montessori Primary manuals too…I was looking through them to see if a year of these boxes would work well for both girls. You have enough under 6 though 😉

  11. Crystal Levin

    That is what I was thinking Sarah! And Alek is sooooooooooooo hands on that he would love them to! I think I may just have to find the $$$ in the budget for this 🙂

  12. Montessori By Mom

    Sarah Harding, exactly! We will provide activities and instructional videos, but we hope that our materials will be a tool for parents to use for years. We are working on an online forum where parents can exchange ideas on new ways to use the materials.
