Tweezing Watermelon Seeds | Practical Life

Inspired by the beautiful blog Teaching Montessori (so sweet & simple - just full of wonderfully displayed Montessori activities. This lady has a brilliant eye! And if only my posts were so perfectly succinct ;) I saved the watermelon seeds from the watermelons that we grew and introduced our first tweezing exercise. 

It's been one of Lovely's favourite activities ever since. I love watching his concentration :)

Yesterday, he started scooping the seeds out of the bowl with his hand & I was so tempted to stop him but didn't and then discovered that he had turned his closed fist into a raincloud and was gently 'raining' with the seeds.

A diversion, yes, but a wonderful one me thinks :)
