We talk about how important it is for us to have an ergonomic work space. The same goes for our kids when they are learning in the kitchen. It’s super important that are tall enough to reach the counter and use the tools safely. Since we can’t stretch them to be taller (my dad used to always tell me he would stretch me to get taller!), we have to give them a step stool or chair that they can use to get to the right height.
There are a lot of step stools out there. We use the super simple folding one that fits nicely by the fridge. Our kitchen is teeny tiny, so small space storage is a must for us. There are also ones that convert from step stool to high chair. Pick what is best for your family and you kiddo.
The last thing we want is a kiddo reaching for something on the counter and grabbing something they didn’t expect!
