Small Tea Strainer or Sieve

This small, stainless steel tea strainer forms part of the Montessori practical life curriculum.  Greater muscle control is required to keep the strainer steady, as the Child pours liquid, sand or flour through the strainer into a cup, or bowl. Just remember to keep one strainer for baking; as well as other sieving activities; and a separate strainer for playing in the sand-pit!
