Practical Life & Motor Skills

Penny Pinching

Ta daaa all done. 

This activity was an instant hit, not only for Lil   Muallimah but for the older Muallims too, They were competing for their turns. Infact Lil Muallim # 1 said "Actually this activity is very good for me because I always have trouble picking up crads and coins from the table" haha that's not only liking an activity but claiming ownership to it too.

Well we did some experiments with pennies and you can check them out too. Penny Cleaning, Penny Polishing and Experimenting with Copper Pennies.


Ladling simply means to pour or serve with a long handled spoon having a deep bowl. This ones surely a very practical activity. It not only strengthens fine motor skills but also teaches patience. The child is advised not to be tempted to turn this activity into pouring, instead keep using the spoon as this is LADLING.

The set up is very simple and self explanatory.

Show the child how to use this activity, explaining what everything is for. Once the understands the purpose of the activity, sit back and enjoy the concentration. DO stick around for encouragemnt and guidance. 

This activity has been picked up time and time again by Lil Maullimah, Lil Muallim # 1 and 2 claiming... "This is fun!" I think they find it therapeutic. hmmm I should try it too. 

What do you think?
