Fresh Herbs & Vegetables: DIY Montessori Practical Life for All Ages

Wow, there is a great arugula and mint pesto recipe on Tracey Miller's site. I call it inspiration for everyone's Montessori Practical Life work at home.

You can work with recipes like this for all age groups. If you are working with toddlers, make it simple and have them wash the arugula and put it in a bowl for eating. Older children can start chopping and mixing.

Working with fresh herbs and vegetables (remember to include growing them as part of the project!) makes eating them a natural next step. Children love to eat things they have grown and made.
