Sweeping up is a great Montessori practical life activity that can be adapted in many ways! Different materials (water beads, rice, small objects, sand... anything!) can be switched in and out as themes in your classroom change to keep the work alive and exciting.
Squeezing an orange Montessori practical life activity is an easy first exercise in at home food preparation for kids. Kitchen learning activities help toddlers develop self-confidence and self-sufficiency in the kitchen, make preschoolers and kindergarteners feel like they are making a contribution at home, and help elementary aged kids develop cooking skills.
Montessori Practical Life activity - color mixing! Using an eye dropper to transfer primary colors onto a tray. Great way to explore how colors mix together to create different shades of secondary colors. Love seeing the colors swirl together! The damp sponge is there, ready to clean up spills. @wmswms (Westside Montessori School, Vancouver, BC)
