This is the table that I had for my two children. It has also lasted through their two cousins and is making its way through our extended family and still looks brand new. We love it! It is 20" tall and 24"square. There are many fine children's tables available - be sure to look for sturdy, well made furniture.
This is a very nice, sturdy step stool. We use this one in the kitchen. It is light enough for a small child to move it around and has handles.
Broom Set by Schylling
This little broom set is wonderful. We keep the broom hanging in our hall closet and the dustpan and brush hang in our children's bedroom. It gets up every little grain- we love it. It makes a wonderful gift and you can find it for under $10.00 on Amazon.
Small Metal Pail
These little pail, along with a sponge make the perfect "spill bucket." In our home as well as in the classroom we have this pail and a sponge on a tray. We keep a large basket of "clean up cloths" (wash cloths) on a shelf in the kitchen. From the time when our children were two years old, they learned how to clean up after a wet or dry spill using either their bucket and sponge or dustpan and brush.
We have the leaf rake, shovel and hoe. They are very sturdy and well sanded- no splinters. They are available in sizes for preschoolers and for older children.
Window Washing Activity
This is a wonderful little activity. Montessori Services has a blue utility caddy and spray bottle which can be used to create a plant care lesson, color coded. You would only need add a blue paint brush for dusting leaves and a blue sponge (you can also use a wet cotton ball squeezed out for cleaning leaves.)
This is a sweet little activity that comes with the cotton flannel dusting cloths, and child-sized dusting tools in a little basket to keep everything organized.
