Friday is our official "Dish Washing Day" :)
Dish washing is found in both Montessori and Waldorf methods. This activity can last from 20 minutes to an hour. The idea is to include the child in daily tasks that need to be done around the house. It builds self-esteem and toddlers usually love this. Just remember what looks like "playing" is really work for a child. Try to make everything "child" size from the table to the dishes. Sing songs and encourage washing the dishes. Never leave a dish washing station with a child and always make sure he understands there is a close to it and the dishes go up for another day. And empty out the pans. Always be present for this. Never walk away. And place some towels on the ground to avoid spills and a possible slip and fall.
