You know that I am all for kids doing it for themselves, not only does it make our life easier but it helps them become a more independent child and responsible too. I was going through my photos looking for a specific shot for the book when I found these and thought I would share with you. It is such a neat trick!

So Easy A Toddler Can Do It!

I checked the date that these photos were taken, Ebi-kun would have been two and a half, almost to the day and he had been doing this trick for a while by then.

It is so hard for toddlers to put their coat on by themselves, this is a real boost for their confidence. I do have a funny story to go with it…

My mother-in-law was visiting and I asked Ebi-kun to put his coat on, so he put it on the floor.

Baa-chan, thinking she was helping, picked it up and tried to help him put it on.

He took the coat off her and put it back on the floor, this happened a couple of times and I could see both of them getting frustrated.

I had to step in and hold Baa-chan back so she could see what he was trying to do. Once he got his got on, she was pretty amazed. To be honest she was pretty skeptical about doing Montessori from home but now she thinks it’s great.
