This idea was given to me by "Discovering Montessori" who commented on one of my posts last week. The instant it was mentioned I knew Ty would love it! Ty has been bummed about it being too cool to play in his water table outdoors (and our floors aren't conducive to water play inside unfortunately), so a lot of Practical Life with water has been quite attractive to him. I'd let him play in the sink but he knows that standing on chairs is unsafe and won't do it. We need a Learning Tower badly!
All that was needed for this work was a bowl, a whisk, and some dish soap! I placed a tray underneath and provided his sponge for cleaning-up spills. We once had a small whisk that would have been better suited for Tyler, but it disappeared from one of his drawers in the kitchen and hasn't yet been found... Kids are so good at hiding things!
He alternated between his left and right hands... We're still not sure which way he will go!

Learning a skill that includes bubbles, water and grown-up tools! What's not to love for a toddler?!
