Etsy Find: Handmade Child-Size Brooms

One of the cornerstones of the Montessori method is teaching young children to take care of themselves and their environment. To do this, Dr. Maria Montessori emphasized the importance of providing age-appropriate tools scaled down to child size. Regardless of the teaching philosophy you follow, these handmade brooms, which are as functional as they are lovely, would encourage anyone to take them for a spin around the floor.

Featuring broomcorn grown on a Tennessee farm and sustainably harvested hickory wood for the handle, each broom is made using time-honored techniques on antique machinery. When not in use, they would look beautiful resting in a corner of a playroom or child's room... coincidentally, inviting children to use them again and again.
