Put Toys on Their Level
The third Montessori tool we use is making child-safe items easily accessible to our little one. In her room, she has open low shelving with toys she can access on her own whenever she wants. The shelves are kept tidy and uncluttered, and every two weeks, I rotate out the toys to keep her interested in engaging with "new" old toys or items. We also keep her eating utensils, her dishes, and towels in the lowest drawer and cabinet in our kitchen. This allows her to gather her appropriate supplies before we eat together and access a towel if there's a spill. Doing simple shifts like this in your household can offer your child more independence and gives them yet another Montessori activity to engage in throughout the day — which can make your life a bit easier.
