Here is an at home Montessori tray you can create for your child(ren).
Pouring trays create a great opportunity for your child(ren) to build their fine motor skills.
Fine motor skills develop the small muscles in children's hands that aid them in tasks such as buttoning their own clothes, using eating utensils or writing!
To create this tray:
- Find or purchase small containers and pitchers that are the child's size.
- Fill the pitcher with water or small objects such as uncooked beans or rice.
- Pair the pouring tray with a sponge or handheld broom and dustpan to allow the child to clean any spills that may happen during this activity.
- Allow the child to practice exploring pouring with various materials and containers.
