With 2 bowls, rice, grains, cereal, cotton balls, etc, and a spoon you can make a very fun game. This activity Develops concentration, motor skills, and eye-hand coordination and the child is learning to transfer using a spoon. This is a practical life activity.
I used a very special spoon made out of a “tapara” (Calabash tree – Caribbean). As transferring material, I used split pea.
Here you can see my daughter transferring the split peas carefully from one bowl to the other. I putted a Pyrex under the bowls for two reasons: 1.- This way it could not slip of the table. 2.- If she dropped the split peas, they would not fall on the ground but inside the Pyrex.
