Montessori saw layers of benefits in a simple activity such as washing a table: adaptation to the environment and culture, refinement of gross and fine motor skills, development of mental order, concentration, self-direction, and functional independence.

Good to know:

In Montessori education, practical life activities are the most important activities for toddlers and young preschoolers. Activities for the care of the environment are both fun and great for developing order, concentration, coordination, and independence.
