Montessori Practical Life: Grating Soap

 

Why Have Children Grate Soap?

This is a fun and engaging Montessori at home Practical Life work for  the child because, believe it or not, is a great fine motor skills activity that helps with pre-writing! This soap-grating activity is great for developing  independence in children ages 3-6, but I have presented this work to children as young as 2 1/2 years old. This work will strengthen their hand muscles and their eye-hand coordination.

How to Grate Soap

Make sure your child knows how the grater works. The sharp edges are at the bottom of the openings, so the motions for successful grating needs to be top to bottom (for vertical grips) or from near to far (for horizontal grips).

The grater needs to be gripped firmly at all times with the non-dominant hand. The soap is to be held with the dominant hand. If the dominant hand hasn’t been established, let the child try both ways to see which one is the most comfortable for her.

The grater openings are sharp, so the child needs to know that they need to keep their hands, knuckles and fingers away from the openings and only the soap come in contact with the grater. Present to the child how to grate a few times and then let the child do it on her own.
