Practical Life is the first area that all children start with in a Montessori classroom. This introductory cooking utensil set offers essential tools that your child may need to start her practical life in the kitchen. Since the child starts walking independently, she is naturally drawn to work with her hands. Being able to prepare snacks or breakfast, and to help out with food preparation for meals can bring so much joy to the child. From spreading jams on toasts, cutting bananas, to whisking eggs and peeling cucumbers and cutting them, these are all activities that you can put together with this cooking set at home, to help to build her order, coordination, concentration and independence, as Montessori calls COCI.
The 7 piece set includes: (one of each)
- butter knife
- jam spreader
- jam jar
- crinkle cutter
- bamboo cutting board (new version with 10 ml wood oil sample): with four anti-slip silicone tips for the sides so that it is less likely to move around during use. The cutting board comes with a small bottle 10 ml food grade mineral oil for conditioning the board.
Recommended Age: 18 months +
Safety reminder: We recommend adult supervision when the child is using the tools.
