Montessori Activity: Scooping Ice-Cubes

Age: From 2 years old

Activity Duration: 5-15 minutes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes


1. To train the child’s fine motor skills.
2. To stimulate the child's sense of touch.
3. To teach the concept cold.


1. 2 bowls
2. Approx. 10 - 12 ice-cubes
3. 1 scoop (I use the Chinese steam boat ladle)
4. 1 Tray


1. Demonstrate it to your child by transferring the ice-cubes slowly one at a time.
2. Encourage and let your child try it.

Additional Information:

J (2Y3M6D) tried this for the first time this morning. I wished I have let him play with ice-cubes when he was a baby, but better late than never.
