The Montessori practical life range has real implements sized for small hands, including this vegetable peeler with a plastic handle, and stainless steel blades. With a small amount of caution and concentration, the Child can use this implement for peeling carrots, etc. It is important to offer the Child a detailed analysis of movement, when we demonstrate how to use the kitchen implements. The teacher is there to supervise, and monitor how the Child uses this tool safely.
The colours of the plastic handles may vary, depending upon availability.
