Blunt Nose Secateurs

Children love to investigate life in the gardens.  Provide them with the opportunity to learn about the cycle of life and where food comes by growing their own vegetables, harvesting them and maintaining the garden.  Once a garden is begun, consistent stewardship is required to obtain the best results.  Secateurs are an essential tool to prune bushes and small tree branches.

  • rubberized handles are comfortable
  • cut cleanly, and easily, with two curved blades that bypass each other in the same way as a pair of scissors do

Why Does Maria Montessori advocate ‘Real’ products?

The Montessori Method of teaching, gives children important life lessons, and skills.  Gardening is one of these skills, teaching children the responsibility of looking after their own gardens.

Growing a crop of vegetables or flowers does not happen overnight.  It requires patience, dedication, and hard work.  The Child will learn that they must continue taking care of their crop in order for it to grow.  Children use the curved blade or long nose secateurs to harvest their crop of vegetables or flowers.  Their faces will shine with a look of satisfaction, and delight as they eat the fruits of their labour.

Size:  17cm long with a 5cm straight, blunt nosed blade.
