Holiday Insets

The Montessori Insets are one of the most creative works in a Montessori classroom. Not only do the templates strengthen pencil control but they can be the beginning of artistic invention.
Here are examples of masters I have made for my students to copy. The kids love these and will do more than one at a sitting to put in book form. I use all types and colors of paper with the insets. This is also a hit laid out on a table for a party for parents. Please copy these and make masters for your own children.

my son saw me scanning your page and ran over to grab our set of insets to draw some presents. Thanks for the inspiration!
