spooning dry

This practical life lesson aims to guide the child on how to transfer dry goods (such as grains) from one container to another using a spoon.

This activity helps to develop concentration, focus, and left-to-right orientation for reading and writing. It strengthens the finger muscles and allows the child to practice hand-eye coordination.

Repeat this activity by inviting the child to pour some cereal in their milk. You can use rice, lentils, split peas, or macaroni for this exercise. Encourage the child to hold the spoon and instill in them a sense of independence and confidence.
