In Montessori spirit, learning is play.
Today Superhero Cupcake is rescuing the laundry with exuberance and pride.
In our home helping around the house is something everyone does. So far we haven’t needed to reward chores with an allowance. We have created a family expectation that everyone pitches in to make the home run smoothly.
She started putting her dirty clothes in the washer when she was two and a half years old. Now at three and a half, she can help hang the clothes to dry.
It’s important to let her experiment a little to learn that thick materials take more time to dry and that when they are hanging flat they dry more quickly.
Every moment is a Montessori moment.
