Montessori Activity: Teaching Self-feeding with a Mirror

Age: From 1 year old

Objective(s): To allow the child to self-correct his error, when he gets to see himself in the mirror.

Material: 1 kid's safe mirror or a dressing mirror.

Directions: Place the mirror on the dinning table while your toddler is self-feeding.

Additional Information:
We used the mirror when J was first introduced to solid food as a baby. It then lost its novelty and we have stored it again until my cousin Cat reminded me sometime ago, and out came the mirror again during meal time. It then lost its novelty again. We brought out the mirror again on two Staurdays ago on 20.3.3011, it was a great hit with J (2Y15D), who kept looking at the mirror, while self-feeding with spoon. I think he was learning to correct his aiming with the spoon to his mouth with the mirror.

You can find it from Amazon:
