My toddler really enjoyed doing this practical life activity especially since the ice were icy blue fish that she had to transfer to the other bowl.
5-Chestnuts Transfer Activity
- Different kind of spoons(plastic-metal…)
- Two bowls
This work can be done by kids aged about 14 months I guess.
Of course there are kids who are younger as well as older who like to play with it,its not easy to tell an exact range of age at these things.
This is a simple sorting activity where the child tries out different kinds of spoons to sort the chestnuts from one bowl to the other.

7-Cotton Ball Transfer Activity
Homeschool transferring activities with cotton balls
- Cotton balls
- Plastic or wooden bowls
- Plastic tong
This morning,I tried some table work with my three year old.I demonstrated transferring cotton balls from the bowl into a jug using tongs.
This afternoon,she told me she had something to show me and this is what I was presented with.She then showed me exactly what to do,removing one cup at a time,forming a line,placed a cotton ball in each cup,then moved each cotton ball back to the bowl,and restacked the cups.
I know these are not %100 Montessori materials since they are plastic,but we are making a gradual transition and working with what we have.It is going great so far and I can’t wait to practice more and have everything switched over to beautiful natural materials.
