This practical life lesson is designed for 1 to 3-year-old children to help them identify and sort different objects using tongs.
Learning about how to transfer objects using tongs allows the child to develop focus, concentration, and coordination. It also helps to develop their persistence as they learn to master the skill.
Let the child repeat this activity with the items available at home like sugar cubes, cotton balls, cooked peas, corks, etc. Encourage the child to pick up the objects with tongs and transfer the items into another bowl, as shown in the video.
