One of my favourite aspects of Montessori style activities and education is the focus on building up a child’s independence and self confidence. I love that Montessori works focus on getting children involved in carrying out an action when they are learning, and I can really see that my son growing with these types of trays. 

His favourite works tend to be focused on a practical life component – an aspect of Montessori that focuses on helping children to basically learn how to do things that are practical and necessary in life. Activities such as pouring a cup of water, buttoning a shirt, tidying up after oneself.  

This page contains a list of the practical life works I have shared so far on Welcome to Mommyhood.
