Clean Up Play

I put together a tray of “toddler friendly” cleaning supplies for Mya to play with and help learn to clean. Unfortunately the spray bottle is still too difficult for her to use and I will keep my eye out for one that is suitable for her to use on her own. She really enjoyed wiping and drying up the water her cousin Abby sprayed for her. I also added a small broom and dustpan for her to sweep with.

Montessori practical life training involves preparing children to care for themselves and take an active, independent role in their own health, hygiene and well being. It also helps them become active participants in their households from a very young age.

The tray includes a spray bottle with a small amount of water, a sponge, a cloth, and a dust pan with mini broom.
