Food preparation activities are so much fun for young children, and they’re wonderful ways to promote independence. Toddlers from about 1 1/2 on can prepare their own snack. For Montessori Monday and 31 Days of Kids’ Kitchen Activities, I want to share a banana cutting activity that’s simple enough for a toddler.
