Working with Tongs

ages 2-4


Two bowls; water; kitchen tongs; small, waterproof items

Activity Detail

Help your child with her fine motor skills with this kitchen utensil game. Find two bowls and fill them with water. Take your smaller, waterproof kitchen items and put them in one of the bowls. Give your child the kitchen tongs and show her how to hold them as well open and close them. Then ask them to grab the items in one bowl and transfer them to the other.

I like this idea and it could also be fun for kids in the older range, from 4-5. My five year old likes to "experiment" with water in the kitchen while I cook, and he enjoyed this activity, with a bit of supervision of course, to avoid flooding!
