This blog post continues to walk you through how a few small changes—like switching out standard storage bins with carefully curated baskets and selecting the perfect spot for your new coat rack—can help create order in your home, all while offering invaluable life lessons and skills to kids of any age. Keep reading to find out why integrating Montessori methods at home is such an effective tool for both parents and kids!
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 in 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 it! 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 Kids’ Coat Rack
We purchased our Kid’s Coat Rack from Amazon. 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!
