My little one really relishes the opportunity to do things entirely herself these days. She has become such a wonderful helper with putting dishes away and folding laundry and towels. We have been making soup and baking muffins once a week, which really has become a great part of our day. Montessori services has a great selection of food preparation tools for small hands. These small spreaders allow her to spread peanut butter on her bread all by herself. She loves them.
