The child’s idea when she saw the sheets of coloured felt was to “make a rainbow dress” and that is just what she did. It took her most of the day to sew all the felt pieces together. Here she is in deep concentration sewing two pieces of felt together.
The delight is clear to see when she tries on the rainbow dress she made.
This is a beautiful example of what Maria Montessori meant when she said “Play is the work of the child”.
