Montessori Activity: Toddler's Cleaning Kit



Inspired by Hapa Lab

Age: From 2 years old

Activity Duration: 5-10 minutes

Materials:

1. 1 container with a small rug or sponge
2. 1 small spray bottle filled with water
3. 1 tray
4. 1 kid's size table or chalkboard for wiping

Directions:

1. Show your child by spraying water on the tray.
2. Wipe it clean and dry with the rag.
3. Encourage your child to try.

Cost:

Mini-size spray: 10 DKK (2.40 SGD) I bought this min-size spray from the Chinese store Chao Chao at Lyngby train station, but you can also get it from Jysk Sengetøj, or simply re-use a spray bottle from the one you bought from the supermarket. Then it would not cost a thing.

Additional Information:

I think the cleaning kit can be a little bit to daunting for someone new to the lesson of cleaning. This is a much simpler kit, breaking down the lesson of cleaning into two parts - wiping and sweeping. In this lesson, the focus is only on wiping. Thus, you basically only need 3 things - rage, spray and water.

For younger toddlers from less than 2 years old, you can even simply it further with introducing just one thing - a wet rug.
