Water transfer and Montessori LINK-UPS

Mondays Montessori Moment is a practical life activity that the children have enjoyed working with.
Water transfer with a sponge…
I put a bit of warm water in one bowl with a sponge and the children soak up the sponge and the squeeze out the water into the other container.

This activity is introduced after the child has worked with one bowl of water and squeezing out sponges. (you can see an example of this preliminary activity HERE)

Squeezing water is an activity that prepares a child for other life skills such as wringing out a dish cloth and washing down a table.

This is such a great suggestion, thank you!

I've noticed that water is the greatest distraction for cranky kiddos. When my 1-year-old is inconsolably cranky, all I have to do is turn on the faucet in the kitchen and she immediately stops crying and leans her body in toward the water. It's like magic!
