Montessori Activity: Spreading Jam

Age: From 3 years old


1. To train fine motor skills
2. To train self-sufficiency in spreading butter or jam


1. 1 bread or pancake
2. 1 kid's size table knife
3. 1 small jar of jam or butter


1. Demonstrate how to open the jam jar and spread the jam on the bread/pancake.

2. Encourage your child to try.

Additional Information:

J (3Y1M9D) tried this activity with jam for the first time today 14 April 2012. He could have tried to spread butter at the daycare, but it was the first time he tried it at home.

I use kid's jam jar. Don't throw away the jar after finishing the jam. It can be used for Montessori taste and smell activity.
