Spray bottle cleaning

Give your toddler a spray bottle and a microfiber cloth and they’ll be entertained for at least 30 minutes! Make sure to fill the spray bottle with a natural solution such as water with a touch of vinegar or lemon juice. With young kids, you can start with small tasks such as cleaning the baseboards, and with older toddlers you can move them on to window cleaning. You’ll need to give them a kid-sized squeegee and show them how to do it before they start. Kylie at How We Montessori has some great ideas for age-appropriate cleaning tasks and the best spray bottles to use.
