Maria Montessori has been quoted as saying “give and do what is necessary for the child to act for himself,” so when your child suddenly starts “cleaning house” and copying mom, give them a broom with a wooden handle, small enough for them to hold with comfort. Let their spirit free. Allow children to fulfil the desire to bring order out of chaos and clean to their hearts content.
This is a life-lesson that they will use through out their lives. The action of sweeping develops their gross muscles. They learn concentration and hand-eye co-ordination.
Size: length of the wooden broom – 69cm, the bristles are 5cm long and the colours of bristle vary.
