A short and sweet one:
Grandma's "duster" and a broom from the dollar store cut down about 12 inches...makes for Vikings so eager to "help" with housework! LOL
This reminds me of my advanced middle school teacher training that described the ideal middle school as one where the students had a voice and were active in the runnings of the school at an age-appropriate level which gave them an "ownership" that caused them to "buy into" what the staff was trying to do. And, as a result, fewer discipline and procedural problems!
Got the broom idea here and thank you to Barbara for hosting this week's Montessori Monday!
