We put together a wonderful first self-care set for toddlers.
There's a 3 main benefits to teaching young children self-care:
It helps children become more in tune with their bodies and its needs.
It gives children a sense of satisfaction and builds confidence.
It gives children more bodily autonomy, telling them we understand they're in charge of their bodies and what happens to it.
All items were purchased from the same companies that Montessori preschools get their materials, we've just purchased in large packs and split them up so families have access to the same quality materials.

The bundle also includes a write-up from a MACTE-certified Montessori teacher, including instructions on how to demonstrate hand washing, teeth brushing, hair brushing, and face washing with all the materials.
Please note the mirror is real glass and the pitcher is real porcelain. Montessori does use real glass, with an emphasis that items are only handed off to the children after a demonstration and use of glass is monitored to ensure it's being handled carefully.
