Practical Life Activities

Set up on a kitchen chair, this helps keep the boys busy!

My boys love practical life activities. Montessori uses them to develop skills to be used in real life, as well as hand-eye co-ordination, left-to-right association and finger strength.

This particular setup was for A. –  C. could do it very easily, so I would probably give him some tongs or something! The objective is to transfer the nuts from the left bowl to the right using the spoon. A. had fun, until he mastered it, then he just tipped the nuts from one bowl to the other!
