Montessori Practical Life at Home: Nail Care

Care of the Self:  Trimming Fingernails

Easy Does It!

Model Patience and Care

Instead of trimming your child's fingernails for him, why not teach him how to do it himself?  This simple setup is just a tray with child-sized fingernail clippers and a tiny broom (see video below for how to use that).  Show him how the trimmers work and where the sharp parts are.  Model patience and great care, so that you don't nick yourself.  Also demonstrate how to tidy up afterwards.
