No, Santa, children don't deserve shitty toys at Christmas


Actually, no child deserves shitty toys at any time of year. Montessori children especially—because they already appreciate and enjoy the virtue of independence.

So here for their Christmas pleasure are seven gift ideas that promote independence in younger children (and then seven doing the same for older children, 10 and up).

As they say in those shitty headlines, number 5 will surprise you!


Hat tip Maria Montessori Education Foundation.
