Montessori Activity: Zipping & Unzipping Zippers

Age: From 1.5 year old

Activity Duration: 3 - 5 minutes


1. 1 purse with zip
2. A small thing to put inside the purse to attract the child
3. 1 tray


1. Show your child how to zip and unzip the purse.

2. Encourage your child to try.

Additional Information:

Last night, Daddy FECS and I were cleaning out our shelf and we wanted to throw away this old purse, but it too was screaming out "Montessori, use me! Use me!". I thought before we throw it away, I will turn it into a Montessori activity teaching zipping. I am excited to try this activity with J!

Updates on 4.9.2011 (2Y5M30D):
J tried zipping and unzipping the purse today, and he could do it well.
