Child is practising their motor and coordination abilities by using crumbs to practice writing. Montessori at home activity.


Through the following activity, toddlers not only build up on their early handwriting skills but they also understand the concept of cause and effect.

All you need are baby rice cereal or crumbed crackers or any baby snack that you can find at home and a cookie sheet or cloth to spread the crumbs. Then, show your toddler how to use a finger to “write” in the crumbs or just allow them to freely feel the texture as they explore their senses.

This activity is similar to writing your name in the sand on the beach, so bring the feeling home to your little one!

As a reminder, this easy-peasy activity might get a little messy!
