Introduction: Door Opener for Infants
Maria Montessori's motto was: help me to do it myself. A small and yet very effective hack is to tie a rope to a door handle. In this way, even small children can open doors. This gives the children a feeling of independence and opens the world of the adults a little bit further to conquer it. When children unintentionally lock themselves in rooms, it is easier for them to get out.
- In about a meter of cord
- If necessary, depending on the skill of the children living in the household, a wooden ball.
- Knife or scissors
- Lighter or soldering iron
Step 1: Shorten the Rope, Tie It to Doorhandle
Measure the length of the rope (so that the child cannot hang himself), shorten it accordingly with a knife and melt the cut edge with a lighter. Then tie it to the turn-knob.
