  • 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
  • safety is paramount, a metal hook ‘latches’ the blades closed

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 blunt 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 curved blade.
