Montessori Activity: Preschooler's Cleaning Kit

Inspired by Hapa Lab

Age: From 2.5 years old

Activity Duration: 10 minutes


1. 1 kid-size bucket
2. 1 handheld dust pan and brush or broom
3. 1-2 spray bottle(s) (to share with visitor) containing water or disinfection solution
4. 1 sponge
5. 1 rag

Additional Information:

I saw this 2.5 year old boy Zo doing a fabulous job cleaning, and got inspired. I have now set up the cleaning kit for J, and it would be interesting to see, if J would be keen to start to do some real cleaning.

After the making colored ice-cubes on 2.7.2011 taught J (2Y3M27D) to clean up and wipe his table using the cleaning kit I set up for him. It was a challenge for him to be able to use the spray, as his fingers could not reach the knob, but he enjoyed it.
