Equipping children with life skills during early years is crucial. Incorporating life skills through play activities help your children learn and develop through play.
For this matching lids activity, we recommend that you allow your child to take the lid and only intervene when they are stuck or when they begin to get frustrated.
Ensure that the lids are separated from the containers. Encourage your child to match the lid with the correct container through trial and error and instruct them try their best to fit the lid as best as they can. Feel free to demonstrate it while explaining.
1. Save different bottles and containers with lids prior to the activity.
2. Ensure that the bottles are empty and clean.
3. Avoid using small lids, which may be a choking hazard.
