Food preparation

Food Preparation activities are very popular in a Montessori classroom.  Not only do children enjoy eating food they’ve prepared themselves, but they learn skills throughout the process.

The food preparation tasks, which increase in complexity as a child ages, help children practice motor skills, such as pouring, twisting and squeezing as well as help develop their pincer grip, coordination and finger and hand strength. Children also discover a variety of foods, that they are eager to try since they helped prepare them. Preparing and serving food is a natural way for children to learn cooperation, experience community and relish the simple pleasure of preparing something for their own enjoyment.
