Fine motor activity in the kitchen

What do you do when you are a teacher and you have a whole lot of left over Chinese chopsticks? Why, make a fine motor activity, of course! We tried this recently in the classroom and it was a huge hit.


  1. Colander

  2. Chop sticks

To do:

  1. Place the colander upside down

  2. Place a pile of chop sticks beside the colander

  3. Ask your child to place the chop sticks in the holes of the colander


We combine the best of the Montessori and Traditional/Early Childhood Development teaching philosophies in order to acheive educational excellence.
