Life Skills: Pouring

Picture 198

Materials used for our pouring activity:

1. small pitcher filled with water 1/2 or 3/4 full depending on how strong your kid is — it gets heavy
2. clear glass cup/mug
3. non-clear glass cup/mug (I used the cups from his toy tea set)
4. food coloring (optional)
5. spoon for stirring
6. tray to catch the spills

Caleb stirring the blue food dye into the water.

Caleb practiced pouring water into the clear glass first.
We started with so this so he could see how much water was going into the glass.

He wanted to change the color of the water. So we just added a little red to make it purple.

I let him pour water into the plastic cups after he was able to pour water that didn’t overflow. He still spilled some, but no worries. He had fun and learned at the same time 🙂 This activity consumed 15-20 minutes.
