You’ll see some interesting things in a Montessori classroom, and food preparation activities are some of them. For example, you might see a hand juicer and think, who juices oranges by hand anymore?
But these practical, hands-on activities are perfect tasks for the young child. When juicing oranges, the child gets to work big hand muscles, work through a step-by-step process, and taste the results of their efforts with a glass of fresh orange juice!
Enjoy this activity with your family on a regular basis. Maybe it’s a new weekend activity! We found the juicer at Target, but a thrift shop would also be a good place to look for a glass version.
