Montessori Activity: Using Spray-Bottle


Age: From 2 years old

Activity Duration: 5-15 minutes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Objective(s):

1. To train fine motor skill.
2. To train the child’s hand-eye coordination skill.

Materials:

1. 1 spray bottle filled with water
2. 1 small bucket
3. 1 tray

Directions:

1. Demonstrate to your child how to spray water into the bucket.

2. Let your child try.

Tips:

1. While your child is at it, talk about the colour of the bucket. Talk about the water in the bucket.

Additional Information:

When J first started using the spray bottle, he had difficulty reaching the handle. Here is a simple way to isolate the activity to purely spraying using just 2 items - spray bottle and bucket.

This evening, he (2Y5M4D) tried this, and after spraying continuously for 10 minutes, he has mastered the art of spraying. Practise makes perfect, also for toddlers.
