Transferring food at fifteen months (from chopping board to pan), Using a vegetable cutter at 17 months, Using tongs at 17 months, Washing food (and independently making snack) at 18 months

As I've mentioned we have a toddler staying with us over Christmas. It seems like the perfect time to give myself a refresher on what a toddler can do in the kitchen. These are some examples of Otis in the kitchen when he was young. The ages are not necessarily a guide, each child is different and has different skills. I hope this serves as a bit of Montessori toddler inspiration!
