Montessori Activity: Spinning Spinach



Age: From 4 years old

Objectives;
1. To continue to teach life skills.
2. To make eating vegetables fun.

Materials:
Spinner from IKEA

Directions:
Simply place the washed vegetables into the container, close the lid and turn it around.

Additional Information:
Besides transferring pom poms with chopsticks, cutting with scissors, this is what we are doing now for Montessori Practical Life - spinning dry vegetables.

J likes to help me to wash the vegetables and spin them dry.

We made it into our Desperate and healthy dinner - ready in just minutes today since I have no time to make dinner, after the parents meeting at the kindergarten. You can find the recipe here.


This post is also for memory that finally J learned to like raw baby spinach leaves. He is loving it and says that it tastes yummy. Spinach is very healthy and I am glad that he is eating them like Popeye now :-) He finished the whole bowl today.


And if we want to go jogging after dinner, this is a perfect light dinner that we can have :-)
