In Montessori education, care of self is an important part of practical life activities. Summer is often a good time to place extra emphasis on care of self, especially if your preschooler’s independence is extra important in the autumn (for example, when there’ll be a new baby in the family or a new school situation).
Trays for Care of Self
Jada Roo Can Do had a fun tray for tooth brushing. Jada Roo Can Do is no longer available.
You can read more about practical life activities and presentations for care of self (which can be adapted for whatever activity you’re introducing) from Montessori Primary Guide.
You’ll find many more Montessori trays and other activities for care of self here.
