Montessori Self-Care Essentials for Winter

We're in the thick of our long, cold, dry winter. Which for the kids means, runny noses, chapped lips, and dry skin. Mostly these are just simple inconveniences that can be solved with a little chap-stick and some lotion after baths. But, I don't know about you, but if I try to put these things on my kids on my own, it doesn't go well. I get a lot of resistance and end up not being able to successfully apply some much needed relief. 

So, I'm taking a different approach this winter - because as with all self-care tasks, it's just so much easier to get my kids involved in the process than trying to just do it myself. To do this, I've put together a small tray with some Minnesota winter essentials. It's just a small travel sized lotion and some color coded chap-stick! This way, after baths, after hand-washing, or any other time during the day, they can start to independently use the tools they need to care themselves.
