Learning to Pour


My eldest is now 2 years old and so I have decided to introduce her to some of the Montessori practical skills. She loves to help out in the house. She helps with the laundry and with our baby, she’s a great little helper! Usually she says, ‘I help?’ Whenever she sees me doing chores around the house!

I thought now would be a good time to show her how to pour lentils into a bowl as well as learn to scoop lentils with a spoon. She still struggles with using a spoon at meal times so I thought this activity would be good practice.




She enjoyed this activity quite a bit. It was good sensory play as well. She also used her pincer grab to pick up stray lentils on her tray which is helping to strengthen her fine motor skills. All that in one simple activity.
