VIDEO: Water Pouring

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0kqny2bk2g] Part of my weekly plan was to practice pouring water and scooping rice. Turns out, rice is just too tiny and I got nervous! So we used Cheerios instead. Of course, he started eating them instead of scooping them. That part of the activity turned into snacktime. Woops!

There's a video of him pouring the water. He did get better as time went on, but really, that glass pitcher is a bit too heavy. He's not able to easily pick it up with one hand. I'd like to find a child-sized water pitcher somewhere that's lighter weight. If I do, I'll let you know where I got it.

Here are a few images from this activity:
