Practical living is just what it implies. It allows the child the opportunity to experience everyday living. They are engaged in taking care of their personal needs, taking care of feeding, washing and toileting. They are given the opportunities to cut their food, pour their drinks and wash their dishes. Because Practical Life Exercises are meant to resemble everyday activities, it is important that all materials be familiar, real, breakable, and functional. The materials must also be related to the child’s time and culture. In order to allow the child to fully finish the exercise and to therefore finish the full cycle of the activity, the material must be complete. The attractiveness is also of utmost importance as Montessori believed that the child must be offered what is most beautiful and pleasing to the eye so as to help the child enter into a “more refined and subtle world”.
