Harper loves her backpack so much she learned to say the word.

Harper has a Frig

I’m so inspired by the Montessori mantra of creating a home environment that allows the child to be independent and found this video of a mom putting the idea into practice by creating a shelf in her frig for her son. Our frig has a pullout freezer on the bottom and is additionally challenging for little people because it has a heavy swing door. After thinking of ways to reconfigure the shelving inside to accomodate Harper’s reach and toying with some ideas on how to have the door open a bit easier I decided that getting a mini frig was the best bet based on safety and accessibility.

I bought the smallest frig I could find at Best Buy (1.7 cubic ft, about 18″ x  18″ square) and squeezed it next to the big frig last night.

This morning I introduced Harper to the new appliance. I showed her how to open it, explained what would be kept in it, how to properly remove her snacks and drinks, and showed her how to close the door and why it was important to keep the door shut.

Needless to say, she freaking LOVES her new frig! She pulled everything out and put everything back in twice. She helped Dada get ready to leave for the playground by getting all her own snacks together and putting them in the park bag. So AWESOME!

For now I’m planning to keep the frig stocked with her water bottle, a cup of juice, some ready to eat fruit, some cheese sticks, and some yogurt.

  1. nanci corzine: What an awesome idea and you can tell Harper's enthralled with the change. Love the little video of the "frig."…

  2. Tu Tu: Between her sink and frig, she's becoming a "little homemaker" :) We look forward to seeing her kitchen skills next…
