Encouraging Little Helpers


My mama pal Tracy recently wrote in with high praise for For Small Hands. Offering products that function in line with the Montessori philosophy, this site features a wealth of little helper items that will teach children everyday skills such as pouring, sweeping, preparing a snack, or helping in the yard. The open-ended activities keep kids busy, encourage discovery and creativity, infuse a sense of contribution, and give parents a chance to get dinner on the table or get some household chores done.

For Small Hands also offers a great selection of art, music, and movement products, books, and classic toys, such as the Potholder Loom Kit (shown; $10), the results of which I suspect my mother still has in her potholder drawer.
