A practical life and sensory activity list

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

Practical life in Montessori is an activity that develops motor control and coordination and develops independence, concentration, and a sense of responsibility for the child.

The exercises in practical life cover two main areas of development: care of self and care of the environment.

Here are some more ideas that we’d like to try in the near future!

  • Sensory time with snow (just like tea pot water play)

  • Snowman sensory puzzle

  • Sponge painting with tempera paint

  • Fill pantyhose with rice and then paint with it

  • Table top shaving cream time

  • Do two ziploc bags of: coloring rice with a couple drops of food coloring and rubbing alcohol then let him mix in a sensory bin with cups and funnels

  • Scrub potatoes or squash with a cloth and small bowl of water

  • Cut bananas with his plastic knife
