Montessori Water Activity: Nursery

Montessori methods for young children have a strong emphasis on the development of macro and fine motor skills. This simple activity, where the child is given a bowl of water, an empty bowl, and a small ladle is good for developing control. The child is to move the water from one bowl to the other, trying not to spill it. I found the small ladle in IKEA, as part of a kitchen toy set (also in the set were a small set of tongs- also useful in Montessori activities!) This may be simple, but three year olds love this activity- have a towel on hand though! Share this:PrintFacebookTwitterEmailLike this:Like...
