Montessori Activity: Self-Service Washroom Station for Toddlers

Low shelves for toothbrush, tooth paste, comb and bath toys
Portable kid's size toilet seat
Stool to reach the sink from IKEA
Age: From 2 years old

Objective(s):
1. To help the child to develop independence skills and self-confidence.
2. To help the child to develop the good habit of doing things himself.

Items:
1. Portable kid’s size toilet seat
2. Low shelf for tooth brush, tooth paste and comb.
3. Low shelf for bath toys
4. Stool to reach the sink and the hand towel

Additional Information:
Joshua fetches his own tooth brush since he was 18 months old. Now, Joshua (then 2Y3M) was inspired by Yang Li’s daughter (who is 8 months older and she puts the toilet seat by herself, climbs up the stairs to the seat by herself, flushes the toilet and folds the toilet seat back to its place), is also doing it by himself, with some guidance from me. Actually, I can already stop guiding him, but I have this weakness of always interrupting his work!

  1. Elaine, you are such an inspiration. I thank God for you! You are a blessing, I have been surfing your blog tonight and can't seem to stop. Thank you, will be using your ideas with Aidan, as soon as our house is properly unpacked and ready. We have a kitchen station in our kitchen that Simon built for Joshua when he was little although it has become Joshua's shop. But it always ends up with other toys in it and I really don't like it. Must try harder to keep it to kitchen play materials. Thank you again.
