{What awesome suggestions for making the cake educational} "The cake is great for hand/eye development. This includes 20 mix n match toppings and is made of high quality wood. But this cake is different as well and not just for pretend play. It will teach your child educational skills as well like learning patterns. For instance. The toppings have three different patterns on them, a rose, bouquet and a heart. You can actually place these face down and have a blast playing the match game..."

    Zina- haven't seen you in ages! Tell me if I'm getting paranoid: I'm really concerned about the near- obsession with academics that I am seeing from parents of very young children on pinterest. I made a comment about letting a child just discover what a material could do, instead of making shapes and I was called down. One parent saying they have to be ready for the DIAL-R at age 3. I know the DIAL and all those other screening instruments very well - oh don't even get me started - I am incoherent on the subject of standardized tests at all ages! Anyway - I know you have a reasonable head - help me out. or email at pneill@highscope.org

    I believe that the work of young children is playing. That is how they learn.

    I have to agree with Nancy, their work is play. I always loved that about Montessori. Actually that's also one of the reasons I like so many of these M&D food toys. It let's us learn while we play... restaurant for example. We learn about taking an order (writing), counting the cookies, etc. I like this because you are also interacting with the child. For me personally some of the issues I have with parents pushing learning is more with technology (little kids using apps and so on). I've seen a baby bouncer with a place to click in an iPhone. That is too much for me. Polly it is always lovely to see you around Pinterest. Trust me, parent here are lucky to have you as a mentor.
