Montessori Activity: Squeezing Sponge/Klemme Svamp/挤海绵 [jǐ hǎi mián]

Age: From 2.5 year old

Activity Duration: 5 minutes

Preparation Time: 5 - 15 minutes

Objective(s): To train fine motor skill development.


1. 1 basin half-filled with water
2. 1 bath-sponge
3. 1 tray


1. Pour the sponge into the basin of water and show your child how to squeeze the water out, saying, "this is how you squeeze a sponge".

2. Encourage your child to try.

Additional Information:

I made a post some time ago on squeezing sponge. I just realize that bath sponge is a great tool to use, much more squeezable than the other sponge, especially for more older children. J (3Y2M25D) tried this on 1.4.2011 and he liked it quite a lot. At this age, he didn't just squeeze it, but he used it to scrub his body and feet.
