One of the most useful activities offered by parents to the child at this stage are Montessori activities that takes care of the development of the mental abilities of the child and encourages them to think and innovate, as well as the development of visual and sensory skills and employ all senses to get to know the world around.
Montessori Activities for 3 Years:
- Sight Development Activities:
Most of the activities that stimulate the child’s sense of vision work to activate and activate the rest of the other senses at the same time, and the main idea in this type of visual activities to distinguish between the types of shapes, colors or sizes.
Exercise colored buttons:
This exercise requires a set of colored buttons that share either shape, size or color.
Here the child works to assemble the similar ones together in a small container for compatibility in the classification;
this exercise develops the classification skills of the child and enables him to notice the differences.
It also develops muscular skills by picking up similar shapes and placing them in the place allocated to them and works to develop their visual synergy; but take into account the application of this exercise under the supervision of parents to prevent the child swallowing buttons.
Compact cutting exercise:
It is known as the Pink Tower exercise in the world of Montessori, but it is possible to replace it at home with some of the tools available; this exercise requires the presence of gradient pieces in size to be compacted by the child depending on their size.
This exercise can be applied at home by using a measuring gauge , trays or food container.
Distributor Exercise Geometric Shapes:
This game has different shapes but the general shape of it ensures that there is one or more columns with some colored pieces that should be entered in the column,
and the child should seek to discover similar pieces in the form and classify triangles, squares and circles together.
Also the challenge for the child in this exercise is to arrange them correctly on the column; he places the largest size first and then the smallest and the smallest.
Of course, here the child will make a mistake and may put the smaller size first, which makes them notice the impediment to progress and then will try several times until finally reach the correct order.
- Hearing development activities:
The child’s hearing develops as he gets older, and he begins to distinguish the sources of sounds and differentiate between diverse sounds
Dried beans exercise:
Dried beans produce great results when placed in a glass jar and fill in half of them. Their ideal size ensures they do not fit into the child’s nose or ear opening.
He also asks the child to take a bunch of them and put them in the pot again and hear the sounds of hitting the vessel.
Do not worry, it is normal that some beans are strewn out of the pot Be patient and ask your child to assemble and put in the glass container again.
This will be of double benefit, along with an ear exercise to hear sounds that will help the child to be patient, collect beans and help the mother with housework.
Hear the Quran:
The West carries out this exercise using music as a language of hearing to develop a child’s auditory skills.
However, the Qur’an will be the greatest language of hearing to develop the child’s auditory skills,
read the Koran with your child and listen together to the audio recorded Quran.
In this period the child has a strong memory and his subconscious can receive and store what he hears from the Koran for later recall in the future.

- Color discrimination game:
In Montessori schools, boxes containing colored wooden cards are made. There are boxes for primary colors, secondary for gradients and gradients.
As a starting point for the child, we choose cards from the primary colors; red, blue, yellow and ask the child to reconcile and synthesize similar colors,
then move to secondary colors (orange – green – violet – brown – gray), and ask the child to assemble similar ones with teaching them how to pronounce their names.
Finally we move to gradients per color arranged by grade,
colors can be printed at home and pasted on cartons or can be used color cards in paint shops.
