Did you find that bowl at Goodwill? It looks like something I could find there easily. Very cool! Val
I love this sweet simple exercise.
Yes thats a thrift find. I love going on PL forages at the 'op-shop' - you never know what you'll find.
This is a beautiful looking activity. I wondered when your boys started using the tongs? Are the ones that are easier than others?
Those tongs are little tuperware ones. I couldn't say when exactly they started using tongs but aside from using tongs in Montessori PL activities we use tongs *a lot* in our day to day lives. If we have a salad or a bowl of vegies or pasta - whatever - on the table you'll also find a set of tongs or two! My MIL bought us some small silver pairs a few years back & they're the ones I use. Just like regular kitchen tongs but smaller. Even I prefer to use them :) My boys also serve themselves breakfast each morning which is an exercise in tipping, pouring, slicing & scooping. I love finding these opportunities in our daily routine :)
