Learning By Doing
Provide your child with such things as cups, spoons, plastic bowls, empty margarine containers, and a wire whisk. Put these items in a basin with water. You may want to place a plastic drop cloth underneath. Your child can then â€œcookâ€ a meal, imitating your actions of pouring and stirring. He can continue this activity on his own, or you can work with himgiving him words for his actions. This is a great outdoor or bath time activity. It is not necessary to have water to do this activity. Your child will have fun pretending to pour water.
