This Montessori at Home post is about a kid's coat rack. Yup, that's it. Creating a child friendly environment in our home is important. We believe that enabling our children to do things on their own will breed confidence and independence. Such a simple change, such as a coat rack at a child's level, can make a dramatic difference for your child's development and family dynamics.
Kid's Coat Rack Will Change Your Family's Life
A coat rack installed at a level so that your child can reach it and hang his coat on his own goes far in a child's development. I am most excited about this tiny change mostly because it has been driven by my 2.5 year old's desire to “hang my own coat, mama”. I don't want to hear him say any longer, “I can't reach, mama.” Of course you can't reach! You're a child living in an adult sized world! Plus once he learned how to put his coat on “all by himself” (the “coat flip“), I became that much more motivated to complete the routine.
Our Kid's Coat Rack
We purchased our Kid's Coat Rack from Amazon (affiliate link). Pretty simple. Nice looking. Extremely easy to install.
My 2.5 year old was so excited to install his coat rack that he grabbed his “power tool” and began the process himself. He decided to “wait for daddy” so he can use his “screwdriver” to help. We ordered two more for around our home. Best $10 we ever spent!
