Montessori-style: tongs and 'onions'

As with the previous blog post about tweezing marshmallows, this is another Montessori-style activity. The variations are virtually endless.

For this activity I set up the tray with a pair of tongs, a bowl of small, white ornaments and an empty Ferrero Rocher box (of course *I* didn’t eat all those by myself AHEM). The children said the ornaments reminded them of onions, and I agree, the looks like little pearl onions.

Another successful, engaging activity to keep my threes busy!

The end!
