Take the simple task of pouring water.  At first glance, it comes across as ‘no big deal’.  After all, the child is only pouring water.

Take a closer look.  For the Child, this task is the equivalent of an adult learning to perform an operation requiring remote micro control through a microscopic lens.

The Montessori Practical Life activities are graduated in levels of difficulty, the aim is to isolate and develop specific muscles. 

When the Child is ready for the next level;  provide 2 identical smaller jugs for practice i.e. narrow necked jars.  Pouring from a larger jug into a smaller jug is far more difficult.  This is for the more adept child.
