Targeted Age: Six to Twelve Months
- Sit on the floor with your baby with some paper cups and dry cereal (Cheerios works well) in front of you.
- Fill a cup with the cereal and show the baby how to pour the cereal from one cup to another. Then, let the baby try pouring.
- Little ones will spend much time doing this activity until they get it right. They also enjoy eating what spills.
The next step in pouring development is to work with water. Do this in an area that you won't mind the spills. The bathtub is a perfect place.
