DIY Montessori Number Cards & Boxes, Montessori Materials At Home

There are many ways that you can contain your handmade number cards. We are sharing our simple DIY Number Card Boxes with you today.

These were made with scrap pine lumber.  The sides and dividers are made from 2 x 4" that has been ripped down with a table saw, and wood glued. The base is a rectangle of Masonite. The tape is acting as a clamp. You can also use lattice moulding. You can cut your pieces to match the size of the cards that you are using.

Montessori math eventually requires or asks for 3 sets of small number cards, and one large set. 
We decided that for our purpose buying three more sets of small cards seemed a bit expensive. We opted to print and create our boxes.
These sets are used for all operations in early math with the golden bead materials.
We often each take a set and "make" a number, and then make it with golden beads on our felt DIY felt place value mat.  This is one of many many uses.  For full use of these with the Golden bead materials I would suggest getting a manual/album I bought several manuals from Montessori Research & Development.

We have greatly enjoyed using these boxes.
